Encouragement to Love

"I'm a guy who needed love," says Kelsey Grammer(Frasier) in the recent Parade magazine. "It takes a lot of courage to love, but isn't that why we're here--to love, regardless of the cost?"

After a life of chaos, addiction, and mayhem Kelsey found love with Camille and with her encouragement, he entered the Betty Ford Center and started straightening out his tangled life.

The simple basic truth is that people want to love and be loved. Dr. David Jeremiah explains the power of love this way, "We are shaped by those who love us or refuse to love us, and by those whom we love or refuse to love. Love is crucial! The world cries out for genuine love, love which heals, unites and encourages."

Kelsey Grammer isn't the only guy who needs love. Every single person is desperate for love in their core places to survive and thrive. You can make a difference by something as simple as a smile, kind words or a listening ear.

How much love and encouragement will you give to someone else today? Often there is a cost involved.

There was One who gave the ultimate gift of Love, His life. What price are you willing to pay to encourage a friend, family member or maybe even a stranger?

It's what we're here for.
