And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 1 John 14:16
Over the years I have lived in many places. Amazingly I lived in the house I was born in until the age of 13, then my parents moved to Spain. We lived in Spain until I was 16, then we returned to the UK and moved to Manchester. Since then I have lived in around a dozen different places.
Some of the places have been truly beautiful with breath-taking views, others have been functional at best! However, I have learned to be content wherever I am and make the best of it.
You may have the best postcode in Tameside, or live in the least desirable area, but what really matters is where your heart is at. I have met lots of lovely people and plenty of mean ones, funnily enough financial status and net worth have nothing to do with it. In fact, some of the most generous people I have met would give you their last pennies. This reveals a heart of love.
The scripture above shows us that when we abide or live in love, we live in God and God lives in us. Wherever you live, whether you are wealthy or otherwise, choose today to live in love, to be generous in heart, word and deed and you will be amazed at what God does in and through you. Choose today, choose God.
