"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love... since god so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another. God lives in us and his love is made complete in us."
-1 John 4:7-12
God loved us enough to send his only son to die for our transgressions. Now that's love! In a world where bullying and bashing others seems to have become more predominate its hard to see God in any of us. Where has the love gone? Many have forgotten that love is the purpose in life. Jesus lived his life in love and that's what we are all suppose to do! Since God is love and love is God then if we live in love then God lives within us. So that being said if we are always going around judging others, bashing people because of who they are or how they act then what exactly is in us. It is definitely not God. Love starts first with Loving God, then loving yourself, and finally loving others. If either one of these aspects are broken than we lose our connection between God. Love takes action and you can not give love to others when you do not have it for yourself. Start your walk in love today!
I Challenge You!
As you go about your life today and in the future start walking in love. Showing kindness to people evenwhen others are bashing them. This shows that God is within us. Love is the glue that connects us to God and when hatred and dislike is in us then our connection with God is broken.
"For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself"
