God has given us many people in our lives to show us examples of LOVE. Our families, teachers, and friends show us their love everyday. Love can seen in the simplest acts of kindness, such as sharing a pencil, playing a game, or even saying Thank-you. We should always show our love for others because love is about seeing the good in people even when they make us angry. Sometimes the greatest acts of love happen when we are angry, such as hitting our sibling back or not screaming at our friends. Jesus is always with us and we should always try to remember His most important lesson, the lesson of love, because love is not about us-it is about looking out for the good of others.
St. Augustine's thoughts on LOVE:
He poses the question: What does LOVE look like.
His answer is simple: Love has hands to help others. It has feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of others. That's what love looks like.
