A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”John 13:34–35
Love One Another
The greatest way we can show our love and devotion to Christ is the way we treat others. We will be known as His disciples when we love the world around us. It is easy to love our friends and the people we choose to be in our lives. It is not easy to love those we feel are “unlovable” or those who have hurt us. But Jesus does not say just to love those we want to love in this verse. He says: love one another.
We were created to love and be loved. God Himself sent us Jesus, His Son, to show His love and devotion to us. He is the teacher of love. So even when you are not sure how to love someone who has wronged you, He has given Himself as an example to show you how to love.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for loving me even when I didn’t deserve it. You are the giver of love. Help me to love others with that kind of love. Amen.
