“How many of us could use more of the love of God in our hearts?” What a question! Well, of course we could always use more love. Watch out! It’s a trick question. Our dear preacher was speaking to the selfish side of man’s character. And, just naturally enough, the response was a resounding YES!
Now we come to the trick part. It wasn’t so much the using part that matters, it’s the showing part. So, the real question is this: How many of us could show more of the love of God in our hearts?

Worry and stress cause people to be distracted. The next thing that happens often tips people over the edge and they blow up. It was one thing too many. Things would be better if someone cared.

Even churches have problems. It’s during trying times that showing love is important.
