Everything around us has a measure of beauty when our life is filled with love. We can have love in marriage, in friendship or the kind of love that God emits—that is agape , or a general love and concern for the well-being of others. When our hearts are full of concern for others and we look for opportunities to help those in need, we are most often the greatest beneficiaries.
It is a godly act to see the need of another and to fill that need. Obviously, this does not mean to jump in and do things for everyone, but when there is genuine need, we must take action (1 John 3:17-18 1 John 3:17-18 17 But whoever has this world’s good, and sees his brother have need, and shuts up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwells the love of God in him?
18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

For those who have learned this wonderful lesson of living, beauty is everywhere around them. This is God’s love; He is love (1 John 4:8 1 John 4:8He that loves not knows not God; for God is love.
