If you would be loved, love and be lovable.                   – Benjamin Franklin


We all want to be loved. And no matter how much we’re loved, we always want more. How can we be lovable? What does this mean? Should we try to be perfect? Should we act cute and helpless? No, being lovable means that we act ourselves. We let others get to know us. When others love us, we enjoy it. We tell them. We let them know that their love isn’t wasted on us, that it’s important to us. We are lovable, and we are loved!

Prayer for the Day. Higher Power, help me accept the love of others today. Help me be lovable.

Action for the Day. Today, I’ll list all the little things others do that show they care
