January 19

I don't know about you, but I do some pretty inconvenient things for those I love. What made me think about this is my little dog Rudy. He likes to sit with me in the mornings and sleep next to me. Over the past week he has decided to curl up on my lap. This makes it very hard to type or do anything on my iPad. He's just so cute sitting there that I can't bring myself to move him. That means that I must contort my body and sit at a weird angle just to be able to type. I also do some weird things because I love Jesus. Probably the most unusual thing for any of us to do is to strike up a conversation with a complete stranger and tell them about Jesus. How uncomfortable and inconvenient is that? But I love Him and out of that love for Him I do some things that are outside of my comfort zone. It's not easy owning a dog and it forces you to change your life and the way you do things; it's the same way loving Jesus!

We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19
