Walking in God’s love is a truth that has been so powerfully displayed in my life. In my career at the United Nations, I changed jobs often. Each time, I had to readjust to a new team and each time it was challenging.
When I joined the Human Resources team, I had to ask for help often, as I did not have a lot of experience in that field. One time I sought advice from a senior colleague. She lost her temper with me, and I was shocked at her immediate reaction. I was afraid to approach her again and didn’t know how to respond. Instead of acting harshly to her, I started to pray for her, asking God to bless her.
On my last day of work, I went to a shop to buy flowers for my supervisor. I felt prompted by the Holy Spirit to buy another bouquet for the colleague who refused to help me.
I decided to intentionally treat her with God’s love, despite her behavior. To my surprise, she felt so touched by my kindness that her attitude changed completely. When I told her I had to resign, she accompanied me to speak to my supervisor to offer moral support and comfort. She showed me so much care in that small action. I will always remember the impact of a small act of love.
To walk in love is a choice we all must make, regardless of our circumstances. This truth has changed my life because I learned that it bears much fruit. We must choose to think, speak, and act with the compassion, kindness, and the grace of Christ. This has given me a sense of freedom, as we do not need to be victims of people’s reactions. Instead, we can continue to extend love to others, to bless them, and trust God. May we all, as believers and followers of Christ, walk in love and unity with one another.
