Where is the love?
When the Black Eyed Peas released their first single ‘Where is the love?’ it was an instant hit. The band shot to fame and youth across the world were singing ‘Father, Father help us, with some guidance from above, ‘coz people got me questioning, where is the love?’ While it may make a good song, one of the reasons for the size of the hit was that actually they were right, where is the love?
The shops today may be full of cheesy greeting cards, big flowers and cheap chocolates but is all of that really love?

So few people care about anyone but themselves, we’re shocked when anyone does something nice, no matter how small. The good news is that that makes it very easy to show people love and live out your faith. Doing something small will have a huge impact because in our culture it’s not expected. So today, instead of worrying about how many cards you do or don’t have, how about answering the question, ‘where is the love?’
