Archives Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Love Like Giants Purpose and Beliefs
The purpose of "Love Like Giants" is to encourage others in doing Christ inspired Love at home, with family, at work and in the community. We accomplish this by doing Love as we are directed by the Holy Spirit, with articles, projects directed at intentionally “doing” love, music, performance and artistic expression, education and training.
We believe that when people earnestly and intentionally seek Love, far reaching and lasting positive change is a natural consequence, both for the practitioners of Love and those around them. With perfect Love, Christ is revealed to the "doer" and every witness to it.

August 24, 2014; It's all about The Gospel
The documentation of Jesus' life, death and resurrection make up the first four books of the New Testament, the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The word gospel originates from the Greek word "evangelion", meaning "good news", and the good news begins with the simple truth that Jesus Christ, born to a virgin, was fully God and fully man. He lived among us in perfect obedience to God the Father and willingly gave Himself up to be killed as the only sacrifice worthy enough to cover our sin. After His death, he rose after three days and still lives today with God the Father in heaven. If we believe this good news, we will be compelled by gratitude for this gift of salvation to also follow the will of the Father.
This is the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, and I pray this message comes upon ears and hearts persuaded to read His word for themselves, and they too will respond in gratitude by imitating Him.
The Parable of the Sower Matthew 13 New International Version (NIV)
13 That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
10 The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”
11 He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12 Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables:
“Though seeing, they do not see;
though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:
“‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.
15 For this people’s heart has become calloused;
they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.’[a]
16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17 For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.
18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. 20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 22 The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. 23 But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”
