Unexpected Love

Illustration  •  Submitted

We must learn to love during the good times

and the bad. But we should always remember that love happens despite

us and when we least expect it. Hurricane Katrina seemed to bring out

the best in many people who generally expressed the most negative view

of how to demonstrate love to others. There was a great event that happened

when students at Auburn University were told that among the

many things people needed in the Gulf Coast community, shoes were

high on the list. During a Sunday morning worship service more than two

hundred students went to the altar, removed their shoes, and walked to

their dorm rooms barefooted. Love comes in many forms and when it is

least expected, just the way today’s scripture would have it happen.

Taken from the sermon, Go Boldly into Judgment Day 1 John 4:7-21 by Ted McIlvain
