Splash: Let Love Overflow!
  1 Thessalonians 3:12, “And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you.”

Love in the Splash Zone

When our boys were younger, we went to Sea World a couple of times.  There were so many fun things to do and see, but the most amazing to me were the shows.  To think that people could train these animals to do tricks.

I remember a couple of shows had splash zone areas.  These were areas, designated by painted lines and usually closer to the front, where the audience was sure to get wet.  Well, really not just wet, some people got soaked.  

I also remember that some people walked very quickly towards these areas, while others sat as far away from them as possible.  Each audience member wanted to see the awesome show but not all of them wanted to “participate” in the water activities!

You will see this as you splash God’s love around.  Some will welcome the refreshing shower of love.  Others will try to stay away from it.  They may say thank you or give you a hug but they just don’t get the joy of Christ’s love.  They do not want to be in the splash zone.

Just like the animals at Sea World, don’t let that make you stop splashing.  There will always be those that are hesitant to join in the splashing.  But I have also noticed that sometimes those that don’t want to join in the splashing in the beginning will eventually warm up to it.  They just want to see what it is all about before getting soaked.

God loves everyone and he wants all of us to join him in his Heavenly Kingdom.  So, splash away: sing his praises, share his love, testify to his goodness.  I pray that those around you will run to the splash zone and soak in the showers of his love.

John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples,

 if ye have love one to another.
