Love Alone Changes People

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Love alone changes people. Of course, love alone changes people because our Father, our Creator is Love. The change is not adding something, but chipping away all that is not love. All of our father’s creatures bear His mark, Love. As long as we are alive we can be changed by Love, because it is the Father within us doing the Loving correction. He is constantly trying to correct us with tender mercy, but never with vindictiveness. We are welcomed Home no matter what. No wonder the story of the Prodigal Son returning Home touches our hearts. Our ill-conceived effort will accomplish nothing. Love gives us room to change. Alcoholics Anonymous is a Spiritual program, giving us rooms and tools to change us, to awaken us, to bring us Home. When we are changed, everyone around us changes is a way we can see with our new vision. Let us accept whomever we are trying to help just as they are. “Love is a fruit always in season” Mother Teresa. Love keeps inviting us to let go, and let our Father have His Way. We are loved for whom we are, not for our works, good or bad. How about paraphrasing a line from the movie, Something's Gotta Give, by Jack Nicholson? “I know these loving things about you, and that make me feel good – about me.” Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
