Outrageous Acts Of Love

Today’s “Pay Forward” gifts are outrageous acts of love. What if we extend an act of love to the most unlovable person in the entire world? What if we forgive the most unforgivable, in the most undeserving person in the entire world? What if we pray for the one who needs our prayers the least and for the one who needs our prayers the most in the whole world? What if we give a welcoming smile to the person that really turns us off? What if we ask some important personal advice from the person we least respect or that we resent? What if we give something, we value to a rich person and to a poor person? What if we have faith in the unbelievable? What if we have trust in the untrustworthy? What if we have hope in the hopeless? What if we are merciful to the one person who shows no mercy? What if we start by offering these outrageous acts of love to ourselves? What if we give in one brief moment that which we have for a longtime denied? After doing these “what ifs” the next question is: what’s it like being in Heaven in the Presence of our Father? Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
