Changing the Norm

Filed under: Uncategorized — Eric L. Peterson @ 5:45 PM

Hey everyone. So I got a question.

About how many of you make a conscious effort to make the world better in some way throughout the day? No. I’m not asking you if you have campaigned to rid the plague of fake reality shows like The Hills, or even if you have found a way to reduce traffic on I-290…no. I’m asking if you have been courteous to someone who didn’t deserve it. I’m asking if you have said something encouraging to a co-worker or someone who looked like they just found out their Mom passed away…what if she did? I’m asking if you have bought a tank of gas for someone, cleaned a friend’s car, make a meal for friends, help someone you know is in need. NO. this is not guilt. This is a call people. common. bring it.

The LOVE of a believer is a powerful thing. We have been given life by Christ. We CAN change the way that others see us. PEOPLE OUT THERE, do NOT see Christians as loving, helping, caring, compassionate, hopeful, decent people. A Ripple, is started by one drop. Lets make ripples people. common. bring it.

Love you all. Prayers always.

The challenge to LOVE and to UNITE 4 LOVE should be a Prize worth running after.

Keeping track

1 Corinthians 13:5 “[Love] is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs…”

Think about that today. Think about what that means. When we love each other, in true love…do we hold the past on one another like a mini golf score card? Um…no. In your love, keep NO record of past wrongs, present wrongs, or even wrongs that you THINK will happen. Love shouldn’t be about holding something the other person did over their head, just waiting for them to screw up. Christ died on the cross so that OUR record of wrongs was DESTROYED! AMEN!? Let’s show that love to each other people. common. bring it.

Let’s talk about anger. Love is not easily angered. Does this mean that we never get into fights? Ha. no. this is not what this means. What this means is that when we love someone, it can become VERY easy to hurt that person. You most likely know that person very well and are very close to them.

All kinds of things can trigger irritability in people, from minor traffic jams to major headaches.  Everyone gets upset or annoyed.  We all, in some way, have lost our temper and reacted without thinking. We have succumbed to anger that drives us to say and do things we normally wouldn’t.  And it’s when we lose control over our thoughts and feelings, that our irritability and anger can do some major damage to our love walk.

Live in Love people, and show the world the Love that was given to us, paid for with the ultimate sacrifice. amen

365 days of Love.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Eric L. Peterson @ 2:59 PM

Hey everyone. I hope today is going well for you. Today I am introducing a new thing to U4<3.

Every week, I will try to put up a video from Jaeson Ma’s campaign, 365 days of Love. This man is on a mission to bring love to all corners of the Earth. I like this guys style.

He has a blog where he keeps all of his acts of love and then every week he makes a video for one of the acts of Love. This is something that all of us as believers can strive to.

Hey everyone. I’m glad that you made it to the blog.

Feel free to participate and chime in. That is, after all, the purpose of why it exists…to unify the body of believers. Feel free to comment and even bring up some topics to talk about in the “Discussion Board” page on the right.

If you haven’t already, I recommend that you go to the “About U4<3” page on the right, and find out what this is all about.

This is going to be the blog that will be the flagship blog for the UNITED 4 LOVE facebook page. It will be posted in the info page.

I’m glad that you are all here and I hope that you are blessed by all that  God plans to do with this.

–U4<3
