be unforgettable

I once read, actually listened to a story about one of the Audubon fellas, you know the bird painter people. Well in this story Audubon's daughter-in-law mentioned how her father-in-law (stay with me), James Audubon, was incredibly friendly to everyone he met. When he would walk the town everyone knew him and he greeted them with a smile and a handshake. 

Let's all do that. 

Let's all treat others better than we treat ourselves. 

Let's show each other love. 

Let's not ever stop. 

in the words of Burt Bacharach - "what the world needs now is love sweet love" and in the words of Jesus Christ - - 
 "and as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them"

enemy love

" ...but I say to you. love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" (God's words)

That's a "heavy metal" verse. 

Think about it, think about it long and hard. 

Who are your enemies. Is it the person who doesn't use their blinker? Is it the driver who cuts you off? Is it the person who smokes in your pathway? Is it someone you see dropping trash? Is it a co-worker? Is it some jerk for whom you have countless reasons to think, I mean KNOW they are a jerk?

Whomever it is - - Pray for them and show them love!
"if you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners (I take the word "sinners to mean everyone) love those who love them" (more of God speaking). 

and what about those politicians and rulers and kings whom just screw EVERYTHING and I do mean EVERYTHING up?!?!?!

pray for them

show them love

how else will anyone ever come to know Christ?
