You Can’t Copy & Paste God’s Love

God’s love can’t be copied and pasted on someone else and called outreach.  I know I’m supposed to love others. But it would be so much easier to just tell them that Jesus loves them and go on with my life. But I believe that’s part of why Christianity is dying in this country. I’m guilty of this at times, instead of showing someone what God’s love looks like though me, I copy and paste, just telling them God loves them, instead of digesting God’s love then writing it out in my own actions of love to others. If we copy and paste God’s love, that’s like cheating on a paper. We have to write it in our own words.

John 13:35 reminds us why it’s so important to ingest God’s love and then let it flow. “Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” The greatest examples of Christianity I’ve experienced did not come from someone’s mouth, it came from their life. Micah 6:8 says “This is what the Lord requires of you, that you do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.” Doesn’t say ‘tell them’, it says show them. Matthew 25:35,36 says “For I was an hungry, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.” Again, nothing about talking.

Copying and pasting is cheating, but ingesting God’s love and spreading your version of it, is not. “Show me what Jesus would do for me if He were here!” is the cry of every human heart.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
