Love Like That

Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.
       - Ephesians 5:1-2 The Message

In one sense, parenting is not very complicated.  It's just receiving love from God and then loving your kids that way.  It's actually just the same as discipleship, right?  

Have you been paying attention to how God has been loving your recently?  Think about that, ponder it, and really get it fixed in your mind and heart.  Now, how might you do the same towards others today?  Love like that.
