274th -- A Show Of Love


The love that we bestow towards others is sure to never be forgotten. 
Whether we realize it or not, our good works do make a positive impact and
helps change the outlook of someone else's life. Never believe the lie that
helping others doesn't make a difference. You may be the only one that can
intervene and help change the direction of someone else's life. I encourage
you to be a blessing when you get the chance and don't let the voice of the
enemy discourage your efforts in making a positive impact that can never
be erased. (1 John 4:11) (Luke 6:35) (Romans 12:14)

I hope you are inspired by this message that shows the blessings that are
bestowed because of one person's act of love and kindness.


I arrived late one night, on a business trip, so I decided to have dinner
in the hotel. As I was finishing my meal, an older couple came in to dine.
They were holding hands and had lovely smiles on their faces. They sat 
three tables from me. I was amazed at the love they showed for one another.
It seemed to strike home, all the more, because this was shortly after 
ending a 20-year marriage and I still had pain in my heart.

My waiter was also their waiter. As I paid my bill, I inquired as to what
their bill was, he informed me, and I gave him the $40 to pay their tab. 
He asked if I knew them and I told him "No, I just wanted to repay them for
the love that they were showing to each other," and then I departed.

The next day my business meeting ended two hours before the flight back to
Houston. I entered the restaurant to dine prior to my departure. After I 
had been seated, the waiter from the night before came up to my table. The
waiter said the strangest thing happened after I left the restaurant.

When the older couple went to pay for their meal, they were informed that
another guest had paid for it. When they inquired as to whom it was, the 
hostess told them they had never seen me before, and that I had said "I 
just wanted to pay them back for the love that they were showing towards 
each other" and that I had then left the restaurant.

The couple were amazed, they looked around, and asked for the bill of two
young couples, who were seated together (in their 20's or 30's), paid their
bill and departed saying "Love begets Love" to the amazement of the hostess
and waiter.

I smiled and said "That's nice," and proceeded to order my meal.

About 45 minutes later, I had finished my meal and was getting ready to 
head out to Love Field, my waiter was no where to be found. I waited and 
waited and finally walked over to the Hostess stand and explained that I 
needed to pay for my meal and hurry and get to the airport. She smiled and
explained that I would not have to pay for my meal.

The waiter and she felt compelled to pay my bill she said, due to the joy
that was brought to the faces of the elderly couple and the amazement of 
the young couples from the night before.

When I told her that they didn't have to do that she said with a smile
"Love begets Love."

What a great blessing it is to bless someone else. The scriptures are true
where we read, "It is more blessed to give than it is to receive." I'm 
sure you can remember a time when you did a good deed for someone else and
received in return a great feeling of satisfaction for being a blessing.
God imparts that blessed feeling that we feel in our hearts when we do
things that are unselfish. Just as God blesses us, so are we to bless 
others. Let us start a chain of Goodwill that will spread like wildfire 
and improve our world all for the Glory of God. (Luke 6:35) (Matthew 10:8)

I pray that you have been inspired by this simple message to bless those 
around you, not because you want something in return, but rather because 
you want to show the Love of God that flows through your heart freely and
openly towards those around you.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

1 John 4:10-12 "Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved 
us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God
so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at 
any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is 
perfected in us."

Luke 6:35-36 Jesus declares,
"…love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend,
hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be
the children of the Highest: for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the
evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful."

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 "Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth
not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself
unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things,
believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity 
never faileth…"

John 13:34-35 Jesus declares,
"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye
love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By 
this shall all men know that ye are My disciples, if ye have love one to
