Come, and you will see

Can’t resist a photo of my loving community, St. Lydia’s, to accompany this post.

Today’s daily meditation in Living Faith is one of mine. The reading is:

“What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi” (which translated means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”
– John 1:38-39

And in part I say:

At the other end of his public ministry, Jesus says, “This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35). If others come and see the disciples, they will recognize Jesus in how their actions and behavior are based in love. If a stranger comes and sees how you live, will they be attracted? Will they see a life based in love?
