Sunrise: “Love” by David Coy, Sunrise Aftercare Coordinator/ Counselor

   There is a great deal of misinformation being circulated these days. As in days gone by as bad as we think our time is today in relation to health scares in our country it is not nearly as bad as has existed during the plague of 1918. Yet with events that have taken place in the last four or five days with anarchists that plague with violence, lawlessness, and lack of respect for human life and what belongs to another it requires a response. Therefore, I am compelled to talk about our need as a society to know and understand love. Love for human life, love and respect for one another as citizens. This can only begin when we recognize the existence of absolutes. There is absolute good as there is absolute evil. Just as there is absolute right and wrong, there is the origin of love and all that is right. We need to discover the blessing of love. 

   Those who have loved deeply and lost understand the value and importance of love and walking in love. They understand a person could possess all manner of skill in life but if they lack love they are nothing but a noisy cymbal. Love patiently endures, and is kind; does not envy or boast; is not arrogant or rude. Does not insist on its own way; is not irritable or resentful. Does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices in truth. We would do well to pray for our nation and world as we do our family and friends that all would prosper and be in health as their soul prospers. Many are living in sorrow today because of lives lost, prosperity lost because of unnecessary forced shutdown and now because of anarchy. The story is told of a man named Diotrephes who was a domineering individual and loved to be preeminent. Too many today lack love and humility. Pray that more will learn these character traits.
