This is a response to the one-word prompt “Drop” by “The Daily Post.”
If you are a Christian; then one of the main tenets of your beliefs is the love of God and the showing of that love through individual human beings and human acts. God loves us, each and every one of us so much that when we acknowledge that love, we are compelled to return that love to him. How do we return our love to God? By showing God’s love to others and by sharing that love.
The rub is how could we share God’s love with others; when his love is such an abundance of love that we as humans could never match. We can never match the love of God, no matter how much we may strive to. The thing is, we don’t have to match his love only a drop, a tiny drop of love and God will do the rest. You see, we experience God’s love the most through the good acts of others. So when we do even just the simplest acts of kindness, such as helping a lady across the street or carrying a bag of groceries when it was not expected, God will magnify that kindness.
By giving just a drop of the love that we get from God back to others, we are actually giving an endless treasure of infinite worth. That’s all it takes, just a second or two out of your daily routines, to make someone else’s day/life better when things are not going their way. And when you do this, showing God’s love, even just a drop, not only are you given a whole lot you are also getting a whole lot in return, not money or trinkets but something better more of God’s love. This, in turn, makes you keep giving more drops or more of God’s love to others making them experience his love and they themselves will share it with others. This, in turn, enriches the world and all in it; it helps to heal the world of all the wrongs in it.
As Jesus Christ teaches us, the best way to combat evil in this world would be to have a society of people loving and caring for one another in the love of God. By just doing a few helpful and good/decent things here and there whenever the opportunity strikes; by just giving just a drop of love to others, we make the world a better place and keep evil at bay. By the way, this message is not just for Christians but for all peoples who just want to help others and make the world a better place. You do not need to believe in God to share his love with others, although it makes it easier when you do and have experienced his love yourself.
