How can I help make this world a better place? Wow! That’s a big question.
How can I hep those who are hurting and feeling all alone?
How can I, just one person, really make a difference in my neighborhood, in my circle of friends and in my family?
My son, David Glasser, was a Phoenix Police officer who was killed in the line of duty on May 18, 2016. He left behind a legacy of love by reminding us how important it is to tell each other ‘love you’ and to show it.
And I have discovered that love is the answer.
Love is a gift given to all of us directly from our Father God. Jesus spoke very clearly about love in John 13, “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
Before he was killed, Davey made sure he said ‘love you’ to everyone when he said good-bye to them. As a police officer, he also persuaded his squad to say ‘love you’ to each other before going out on their calls. Now we all understand what a blessing it is that these were his last two words he ever said to each of us.
Davey knew how important love was and he was great at saying it. Even more important, he was great at showing people – all kinds of people – that he loved them. This was his legacy of love. And honoring his legacy has helped all of us through the many dark and painful days that have followed his death.
There is a supernatural magic in love that I had never experienced before these last 2 1/2 years. Jesus knew this thousands of years ago when he told us –
‘Love one another’.
Thank you for giving us such a clear answer, Jesus.
