This week's scripture continues to invite us to think about what it means to "abide".  Specifically, we are advised to abide in Christ's love.  If the way that others know that we are Christians is by our love, it seems that it is important to express love wherever we go.

Try this prayer exercise:

Envision a dry, brittle sponge.

See it soaking in water, absorbing liquid into every cell.

When it is pressed, it oozes water from every cell.

Envision your heart, mind and body as that sponge.

Soak in God's love.

When people or situations press in upon you, let the love of Christ be what splashes out.
