Help Us to Love
The song “Help Us to Love” engulfs us in a feeling of warm reverence. Its lyrics hold meaning to us, reminding us that Jesus is there for us. It tells us to love our neighbors, with the lyrics:
It takes everything to make love more than a dream
God help us to love the way that you love me
It also notes the way our world is with the lyrics as if it was a perfect mirror to our current situation:
This world is weeping, hurting, broken and begging for change
But still we marching, praying, dying, and things stay the same
When will we see?
Till everyone’s free
Listen to this marvelous song right here!
In These Difficult Times
We, moving into a society where there is little love left, have to re-learn that we are all equally deserving of it. The paths that we are on now have questionable morals and beliefs. And it is safe to say that most of us have gone astray from the word of the Lord. In a time full of war and suffering, love is about the last thing that would be on our minds, but the Lord said:
1 Peter 4:8: “Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.”
We may believe that we do not deserve love. That we are sinners, who are not worthy of the acceptance and the sacrifice of our Lord. But, we should always remember that he loves us regardless. And even if we forgot about that momentarily, he will still be there for us, his loving arms waiting for us to be home.
We must, therefore, extend that kind of love and compassion to our brothers and sisters in times where they have felt little love, and they have felt little compassion. We may think that we are not capable of changing the world, but we can. We can, through love and devotion to each other as brothers and sisters under the name of our Lord.
