Love For Others

So many souls starving for love
have never encountered His presence,
or at least have not been aware
of His very essence.
They have searched and failed,
or trusted in the wrong kind of love.
By the time they have heard,
they doubt the great God above.
They do not know His saving grace.
They do not trust His way.
They do not understand
the love they throw away.
We are to be that love for God,
as we love one another,
bringing God to these hungry souls
by esteeming one above the other.
By loving and forgiving those
who have wronged us,
we are showing others
how His love is pure and just.
Lord, teach me to love my neighbor
as I would love myself.
I pray and thank the Holy Spirit
for all heavenly help.
