Now the rubber hits the road. It is easy enough to say we love God…but now he expects us to love others! “
Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. (1John 3:18, NIV)
“So then, God, who did you have in mind? Who are we to love?”
ARE YOU KIDDING, GOD…EVEN WEIRD UNCLE GEORGE??? “I NEED TO LOVE EVEN MY RUDE NEIGHBOUR; YIKES!”)
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. (Romans 13:8, NIV)
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. (Ephesians 4:2, NIV)
(Before you go crazy on this, be sure to read tomorrow’s devotional on Common Sense Love.)
Prayer-Father, show us how to show your love. Amen.
