Love, The Universal Language

Recently, while at my desk reading the Bible, my young cleaning lady who speaks limited English asked what I was reading.  As I began attempting to explain the story of the tares and the wheat, she had a puzzled look on her face.  Realizing I was trying to intellectualize the parable, immediately I turned to God and thought of Proverbs 3:5 where it states “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”

There is no recollection of what I said but her smile was huge as I realized Truth and Love was what she understood.  It made no difference the words but it is clear that Love and Truth represent the Universal Language.  Maybe it was just putting the Bible down and  giving her time.   Maybe she knew I really cared about her.  There is no doubt that we both felt the presence of God as we embraced and said out “Good-byes”.
