My last post was about the love of God, but I see a real need for people to learn to love too. I’m not talking about your wife or your sister but I’m talking about loving others like they are your family. The Bible tells us to love our enemies and pray for them. Thats a hard thing to do is to love our enemies, but that is what Jesus did. He loved those that hung him on the cross. He loved those that beat him and spit upon him. He did many wonderful things for those that didn’t love him back.
There is so much hate in the world. Let us learn to love others more than ourselves. John 13:34 says: A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 1 John 4:7-8 says: Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
This world would be so much better if people loved others as much as self. People would help their neighbors. They would feed the hungry. They wouldn’t see color of peoples sin, but have compassion on the injured. They wouldn’t be mean to others or kill others because they would love them. This year I ure you to try to love others more than you do today. Love your enemies. Try to find good in them. Speak words of kindness instead of words of hate. Quit worrying so much about yourself and what you didn’t get. Or what someone else has that you don’t. Learn to love others so much that you would give them your last dollar. Love others enough to give them a coat to stay warm or shoes for their feet. We should strive to be more like Jesus and I know he would do those things.
