Theming The Year with Love, Listening, and Light

It’s January 2019! Before jumping in to make all those goals and resolutions, I think it’s awesome to reflect on what we want 2019 to represent, what we want this year to stand for.

To that effect, and in what’s become a yearly tradition of one of my favorite communities, Cornerstone church’s young professionals, my words of the year are…

drum roll***:

Love

Listen

Light

Those words came to me over the course of the last few weeks as these truths crystallized in my mind…

God is Love
To love is to reflect God
To listen is to communicate effectively
To be light in the darkness is the purpose of a Christ follower

…and just in case you’re wondering, as I often did, about how we can define Love, please check this link: 1 Corinthians 13! Here’s a preview:

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7:

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Have a super, duper, blessed and joyful year:))!
