My life is a reflection of the love of God.

When Jesus spoke of love, he used one of four words. Translated into Greek they are: storge to describe familial love, philia to describe love for a friend and eros for sensual love. The word he used most often, though, was agape--God's love--the highest form of love.

God's love is my foundation, the source from which I draw my strength, and the power that enables me to live each day in an awareness of God's presence. I may experience many types of love, but it is agape that gives each experience meaning and substance.

When I pray for others, I express agape. When I rest in God's presence, I experience agape. God's love empowers and completes my life.

Now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.--1 Corinthians 13:13
