We know that we have passed over out of death into Life by the fact that we love the brethren (our fellow Christians). He who does not love abides (remains, is held and kept continually) in [spiritual] death.
— 1 John 3:14 (AMPC)
From start to finish, in all kinds of ways, God’s Word encourages and challenges us to love other people; it is the example Jesus set for us throughout His life and ministry on Earth.
If you truly desire to love others the way God loves you, you must first purpose to fill your mind with kind, loving, unselfish, and generous thoughts. Take a few minutes each morning and ask God to show you what you can do for somebody else that day. You can even choose a specific person. Focus on loving others, and you’ll have a life full of love and happiness and be a great encourager to others.
Prayer of the Day: Lord, I understand that my purpose needs to be to love other people, but I’m going to need Your help. Please fill my mind with loving, unselfish, and generous thoughts, amen.
