The Perfect Motivator For Everything We Do

 Love is patient, love is kind. 
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, 
it is not easily angered, 
it keeps no account of wrongs.

A new commandment I give you: Love one another. 
As I have loved you, so also you must love one another.  
By this all men will know that you are My disciples, 
if you love one another.” 
John 13:34-35

What excellent persuasion
Motivates me and you
When love becomes the reason
For all we say and do

How soft a season scatters
The everyday of lives
Then tucks its tender tatters
Into Bygone’s archives

…and all that really matters
In daily here to there
Is what we did for others
To show we love and care

Then be not long despondent
When weary of its ‘ask
Love makes each role resplendent
Regardless of its task

…and makes most noble victors
From earth’s lowliest lot
If we live to love others
With everything we’ve got

With all that we can muster
Let's lift love's beacon high
And imitate Love's Author 
The Lord of earth and sky

 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, 
but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
Mark 10:45

I often think of/listen to the song below, when someone passes on...


...and another beautiful 'love' song!
