There is one incredibly kind sentence we can say to everyone. There may be other sentences, but none are as important as this one. This one must be spoken with a serious but pleasant tone. Not only that, it should be given when there is an atmosphere of openness and receptivity. Too much noise, a lot of hustle and bustle, dizziness—all suggest that waiting to say this later would be better.
The sentence is this: "Jesus loves you!"
This gift can be given to everyone. There are no exceptions.
Presenting loving kindness of such great value calls for thoughtful carefulness. The recipients, hopefully, need to be touched when this gift is given to them.
Like giving any precious gift, the "Jesus loves you" treasure must be given with thoughtful, loving kindness, but it can be either casual or rather formal. And the prayer surrounding the gift-giving is that the person to whom it is presented will quietly, deeply, and earnestly realize how precious and beloved they are.
When we live with the realization and celebration of being loved by Jesus, in this life and the life to come, we are experiencing the joy and satisfaction often called "eternal life" or "salvation".
Make a conscious note to yourself to say this to someone today.
