I Use My Faith In Everyday Life, I Love First

Being loving is often one of the hardest things to do on a daily basis. Here's how I try to love first no matter what.

I Use My Faith In Everyday Life, I Love First
Sarah Pfile

Welcome to part 2 in my "Live Christian" series. If you didn't know, part 1 is called "I Use My Faith In Everyday Life, I Stay Kind" Love no matter what. This one didn't come naturally at first. I wasn't just walking through the grocery store thinking "wow I love everyone in here!" I practice loving everyone by showing them, love. It goes hand in hand with being kind to everyone around me.

God's love for us is unconditionally given to everyone. In the same way God shows us, love, I want to show that love to everyone around me. When I meet people, I want to do my best to convey that Jesus loves them no matter what. I know that sounds cheesy but when you look at the world today there just isn't enough love. Everyone is fighting about one thing or another and there's a negative cloud over everything. It's so frustrating because everything positive gets overshadowed. Even the positive pop songs about being happy are shallow and don't have any impact besides the way it makes you feel for .5 seconds. Because of this, coming across a person who is loving and kind is such a refreshing experience. The world needs more of that. I hear the call of action and try my best to make the world a better place one loving act at a time.

I know this seems like a great idea written down but it can be very challenging. We all have grumpy days and hangry moments and even though it's hard we must try to be kind and loving even in these moments. Jerimiah 31:3 says

"I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness"

In this verse, we see that God loves us with an everlasting love that isn't comparable to anything on this earth. Because His love is so passionate, He drew us into existence with unfailing kindness that flows through us. It's our job to show this kindness to everyone around us. It's so much more than "spreading good vibes". It's opening up your heart and showing everyone around you the unending love you have.

It can be hard to find the line between showing everyone God's love and shoving religion down everyone's throats. Sometimes to show His love you don't even have to bring Him up at all. Just love and be kind and it will get you far. Thank you so much for tuning in, have a great day, and remember that you can help change the world!

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
