Be Present

 

How do you define presence? I love this quote! “If you love someone, the greatest gift you can give them is your presence.” Most would define presence as the “state of being physically present” at certain times such as at mealtime, bedtime, breakfast, ball games, and the like. Let’s take this a step further.

“If you love someone, the greatest gift you can give them is your presence.” Being present in the physical sense is wonderful. Existence – certainly for Christians believing that our Lord Jesus and God are with us but not seen is fundamental. God “exists or is present in a place but is not seen.”  How can we incorporate this into our daily lives?  The answer is clear. Though distance may keep us physically apart from a loved one, we can help those persons feel as if we are present no matter what. A simple phone call, short text, a email, or a postcard will do this job nicely.

“If you love someone, the greatest gift you can give them is your presence.” May today be a day full of presence in your life, and the lives of those you love, and may we all feel this presence. My point is that, even though miles apart, we can still make our love and presence known. I love you!
