Devotional: My wife Maria is an amazing chef. One of her specialties is making pie. It’s one of the ways I know God loves me. And if Maria is ever making lies, she usually makes several kinds. I haven’t decided which of her pies is my favorite because each one is tied for first in my belly. When the pies are out, I usually get a slice of each one-apple, pecan, pumpkin, chocolate. I know, that’s a lot of pie, but how can you blame me?
The downside of pie is in the limited number of pieces you can get out of one, even if you cut them into the world smallest slices. Love doesn’t work that way. We can never run out of love, never give or receive too much. Sometimes we start to think it’s finite because resources like time and energy can run low. But when we choose to give more love, we get to watch it multiply. People return our love, giving back what we gave away with a little extra. Then the cycle happens all over again, everybody getting a little more than they gave away. Love is one of the few things we don’t have to guard. We don’t have to be greedy with our love. It multiplies when we give it away.
Don’t worry about who to choose when it comes to love. Go ahead and love everyone.
Discussion: What would you do differently today if you believed that love never ran out?
Activity: Pick one person this week and show them extra love, like it will never run out.
