“When nothing else would help, Love lifted me!”
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son…”
“Love the Lord Your God with all your heart, soul, and mind and love your neighbor as yourself”
Why should we love God and other people?
When we love God, we won’t sin against Him.
When we love people, we won’t sin against them.
Changing the climate of hate in our society would be so simple if people knew how to love.
Love does not hate and will not seek to do wrong to another.
Love seeks to care for and shelter self and others.
Love is forgiving (God forgives us).
Love corrects, admonishes, and warns against dangers.
Love embraces the object of its affection and nurtures the relationship.
Love does not complain or murmur against one another.
Love overlooks shortcomings and faults and loves anyway.
Love shares love with all who will receive it.
Love sees the needs of others and serves them.
Since God loves us so much, we should love one another whether a person is lovable or not.
If we learned how to love, there would be no wars, no murders, no rapes or incest, no violations of laws of any kind. Before we can love others, we must learn how to love self and then let the love overflow!
Love, like prayer, changes people!
Show some love today. You just might save somebody’s life and give them a reason to get closer to Jesus!
