How do we show Gods love to other people?

I have come in contact with many people over my years. I think about how they showed me God's loves. First of all they were kind and thoughtful. They helped people that were less fortunate than they were. They were concerned about people that others thought were throw aways, they excepted them like they were. They considered everyone important in the eyes of God, therefore others were important in their eyes also. Does that mean these people did nothing wrong? No, what it means is they were doing their best to show what God would do if He was here in person. They were living God in their lives. I believe that is the only way we can show people God's love, by being Godlike. A number of years ago everyplace you looked you could see some kind of sign that read "WHAT WOULD JESUS DO" (taken from the book In His Steps by Charles Sheldon).  I think it would be good if we started thinking and acting that way again. The words are only a verbal and visual
reminder. The change is in the heart and mind. I am challenging myself to do my best to take these words to heart and ask God to help me to live them out in my everyday life. I would like to challenge you to do the same. One person can make a difference!!

How Does God Show His Love?

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about "how I know God loves me" is the fact that He created us with the ability to choose. He did not make robots. Shortly after man was created man started making wrong choices. God did not give up on mankind. He gave us His son to draw us back to Him. If that isn't love I don't know what is. Bad things happen to us and the first one we blame is God. Good things happen and it is luck. I believe there seems to be something wrong with that kind of thinking. God has His unseen hand in our lives from day one even when things are wrong. He loves us so much He sends special people in our lives to help us along our journey. Many times we do not see it as that. Those people that except us like we are, lift us up when we are down, lead us when we go astray and love us in spite of wrong choices. Those are the people God positions along the road of life to help us. If He did not love us I do not believe it
would matter to Him one way or the other. I look back over my life and I see a number of people that was placed along my path to help me on my journey. STOP and think about the many people in your life and see who God has put them along your path just when you needed them. THEN thank Him for loving you so much. I have many times and I'm sure I will many more times. Oh how He loves you and me.

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
before you were born I consecrated you;
I have appointed you a prophet to the nations."
----Jeremiah 1:5
Your life was planned out by God. What messes it up is the free will He gave us. Sometimes we make unwise choices. This is you stepping out of what He has for you. It does not mean He is leaving you. He is waiting on you to see the light and come back to Him. Other times other people make unwise choices that affect your life. He gives you the grace to handle it. He keeps you in His hand waiting for you to see Him. It might take a long time for you to see that He really loves you. You might make wrong choices because of the anger and hurt you are experiencing. You also might be angry at God for allowing these things to happen. That is okay; He is a big enough God to handle all your feelings. Remember He gave them to you. He has a purpose in all things good and bad. Remember He is there waiting with outstretched arms for you to come back to Him. He will help you to make good out of the bad that is in your life. He does all this because He does love us very
