This is almost certain to get me in trouble. So be it.

This is almost certain to get me in trouble.  So be it. In a few months, Lord willing, I’m going to turn 63. I’m going to share with you one of the most important things I’ve learned over the last 63 years.  If you love someone, tell them.  I’m not talking about being promiscuous, and I’m not suggesting you be unfaithful to your spouse. I’m just talking about good, wholesome, Christian compassion.  I’m talking about being demonstratively compassionate, just like Christ suggests.  In JOHN, chapter 15, Christ says, “9“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.”  I suggest you highlight this scripture and practice it always, regardless of the consequences.  And if you love someone, tell them.  They deserve to know.  SC
