I just got finished with the book Love as a Way of Life by Dr. Gary Chapman. He's the author of the book, The Five Love Languages. In this book he goes over characteristics of loving people. They are things like forgiveness, humility, patience, kindness, and so on. He illustrates each one with poignant stories of real people who face horrible situations and chose to take the high road. For example, did you know that the Amish community that was devastated by the lone gunman that killed some of their children set up a fund for the man's wife and child? It was a shining example of forgiveness and I'm sure one that touched the people involved as well as any who heard it.
Nothing in this book is new but the stories help remind you of what God wants for us as human beings. I loved this book. I have an extra copy to give away. If you want it, leave a comment (click on the comment word at the bottom of the post) and a way to contact you and I will draw a name next friday.
