What does love look like?


What does love look like?

It is a woman walking on the a busy street in Ghana stopping to pick up a crying baby left in a bush.

It is a family surrending the comfort of America and moving to a third world country to be available for the needs of orphans who may not have a chance to survive.

It is a wife and mother sitting in a mosquito infested hospital room with a little girl whom she has grown to love so that this little girl can go begin her life with her forever family.

It is a couple donating personal resources for a family living overseas to be able to fly home for the holiday season.

It is a community of people gathering and providing 90% of the costs for an International Adoption during a hard, economic time.

It's a friend sending a text 3 times a week saying "press on, you can do it, He is faithful."

It's brothers and sisters praying and begging God to provide a way.

It is a friend and mother of 7 kids offering to accompany you overseas to help you bring your child home.

Most importantly, it is a man...fully God, fully man. Leaving the throne of heaven and coming to earth. Experiencing all of our emotions. All of our struggles and hardships. Facing death head on for all of mankind.

Jesus, I don't have to ponder what love looks like. You have shown us the way.
