Love is the Universal Language

My husband and I love watching the Winter Olympics.  Recently I was reading where a recent new owner of a silver medal was in a definite slump last month and it was apparently obvious to others.  Then, from the unlikeliest of places, a competitor from a foreign team, who spoke no English offered his sled to this young man, which never happens.  One does not offer up his sled, nor favorite running shoes, etc. especially to a competitor.

Philippians 3:13-14 reads “Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it.  But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”  Isn’t this what happened?  He allowed himself to swallow his pride and accept love from another.  That, to me, is Love expressed!
