  • Motivated by Love …by Matt Pryor

    If I give all I possess to the poor and

    give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:3

    What motivates us? Each of us has a motivating factor that runs our life. That motivating factor can be any number of things: money, approval from others, success, fear, etc. The question is, what gets you out of bed in the morning to continue to do what you do? As Christians, our motivating factor is love. As I read the Gospels, I’m always struck by Jesus passing on love to ALL people in all different circumstances!

If we have not yet experienced this kind of love, then all we pass on is our knowledge of love which can only take us so far.

    Here at Haven of Rest we are called to pass on unconditional love (the same love God offers us) to the men, women, and children that come here. This love is the motivating factor we need to receive those who come to Haven of Rest. Even as we provide food, counseling, job preparation and other resources to those we are called to serve, our hope is that unconditional love will permeate all of our efforts, and point others to that Source of love.
