We've talked about what real love truly looks like before on WakeUpWorld! This story is a perfect example of it. A tornado raged through Joplin, Missouri on Sunday, taking with it at least 126 lives and injuring more than 900 others, making it the deadliest tornado to hit the United States in 64 years. When the tornado struck, Don Lansaw did what he instinctively knew he had to do: he covered his wife's body with his own in their bathtub, and he was killed. What has happened in Joplin is tragic. But there is beauty to be seen even in the greatest of tragedies. Don Lansaw has given us a great example to follow. We may not all be called upon to give our lives literally, but we can give our lives in love to everyone around us each and every single day. Maybe that's what the Bible means when it talks about "dying to ourselves." After all, sometimes the difference between good and evil is simply selfishness.

"Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13).
