Never meet a stranger!!

So if y’all don’t already know, lemme say that God is so good. He made this beautiful earth with every beautiful tiny detailed flower and he made every single beautiful person on this earth with his own hands and molded you exactly the way you were supposed to be molded. We were made perfect in his image. So with that said. No one person is better than any other.  It doesn’t matter what type of car you drive, the brand of your new sunglasses you bought, how great and expensive the house you live in is, or how much money is in your bank account. When we get to heaven all of that is going to be stripped away and the only thing that is going to be looked at is your heart. Where is your heart at? Are you being intentional with your daily actions? Are you loving those around you? Mark 12:30-31 says “Love the Lord your God with all of your  heart and with all of your soul and with all of your mind and with all your strength.  The second is this:  ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” It specifically says LOVE your NEIGHBOR as YOURSELF. I feel like that is not taken as seriously as it should be.  I know you probably hear that verse a lot but like really love is so important. Loving those around you is SO immensely important. LOVE can bring the dead to life. LOVE can move mountains.  It is so sad that nowadays when I walk around campus or through the gym nobody even cracks a smile at me. It truly breaks my heart.  I want to take it personally but I really can’t because that’s today’s norm. The “I’m too good to smile at this random stranger” kind of attitude. It is so disheartening.  One simple smile and one simple act of kindness or love could change someone’s day or even somebody’s life.  You never know what’s going on in somebody else’s head or life at the moment and you should never take advantage of a time when you could show somebody that they have meaning and that they are loved  even if it is by a stranger. That smile that you could’ve smiled, may have been the only positive interaction that they have had that day. LOVE is so important.
