"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." -C.S. Lewis

"Do everything in love." -I Corinthians 14:16

I know it may be a little bit contrived to have a "favorite" verse, or a "life" verse, but I think it important for me to have a short phrase or passage that I can continuously repeat throughout the day to humble me and remind me to love and serve others.

I love this short verse because it is such a small verse with so much impact. The command to love is so simple yet so overwhelming at the same time.

When I think of this verse, I ask myself, "How can I do love?" First I think of silly things: how do I brush my teeth - in love? how do I comb my hair - in love? But then I start thinking about real things, activities that I do everyday that can be transformed by love. How do I send this e-mail - in love? How do I greet my co-workers - in love? How do I greet a complete stranger - in love? How do I react to someone or something that angers me - in love?

When I take the time to think about how I can incorporate loving others into my everyday life, what kind of impact will I have?
