Day 58 Loving Others
Sunday, November 20, 2016
Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' - Matthew 22:37-39
Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. 1 John 3:18
People say love is a decision. Sounds simple enough, right? The fact is, that telling others we love them and showing that love are two very different realities. Jesus is the embodiment of active love. He loved those who were thought most unlovable. And we are called to do the same.
Lord, let me be intentional active, and willing to put aside my own desires so that I can love others better.
