Above all, have fervent and unfailing love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins [it overlooks unkindness and unselfishly seeks the best for others] ; (1st Peter 4:8 Amp).
When we love from a genuine place within the heart, we see others through the eyes of Jesus. This place of authenticity is where we give without expecting something in return, and we able to share our God-given gifts with a pure heart solely bent on helping others.
Christians are in this troubled world to make a difference. Take time to listen and understand someone who is feeling challenged by the vicissitudes of life. Someone may be troubled because they’ve lost a loved one, a job, their home, or perhaps they’re facing divorce. If we take the time to listen and show that we care, it can make a difference in someone’s life.
Coping with change can be traumatic, especially for the elderly. That’s when a smile, a caring heart, and a pair of loving arms can help.
God loves us freely, whether we know Him or not, even when we don’t deserve it. Why can’t we love like God, if we love Him? God so loved the world means that God loves everybody. He loves us all unconditionally. Above all else, let love be the glorious prize for which you run your Christian race.
Love is patient and kind; it looks for the best in others, not the worst; it endures all things; it does not boast; it isn’t rude or jealous; (1st Cor. 13:13-14). Love is a gift that we’re able to share with others every day. The best gift is to point others to Christ by showing His love. Give the gift of love because it keeps on giving!
Have a blessed day!
