The only way to combat what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary is to LOVE.

There is so much we learn from the Bible: How to grow closer to Christ, bring joy into our lives, peace into our hearts, contemplate how God wants to use us for good…the teachings are endless. We will always be learning, growing and in transformation. There is one simple theme to many of these teachings: LOVE they neighbor.

I attend a regular Bible group and we are studying the book of John (AKA the Apostle of LOVE). The word “love” seems to be popping up more and more the last couple of months in my readings, teachings, and sermons. Then again, last week when 26 souls were taken in Connecticut, I turned to my pastor that day for guidance. I asked him, “How Pastor Chris” How do we go about our lives after something like this? What should we think? More importantly, what does God want us to do?”

He softly replied, “What he wants us to do Ana is to love the person in front of you at the time. The legacy we need to leave with people is love. Mother Teresa who was all about love once said to be caring and compassionate. That whoever comes in front of you each day may they leave more blessed, more happy and loved because they were with you.”

Hate and darkness showed up at Sandy Hook Elementary, but I firmly believe love and light with triumph!
