|Corinthians 13:13 New International Version (NIV)
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
I thought I was done with “love” for a while but I couldn’t pass this up. Scripture after scripture tells us to love, so why do we find it so hard to do?
Granted, some people just aren’t very lovable. Sad as it is, it’s true. But then, I think about Jesus. His love and compassion surpassed everything else! On occasion, we saw righteous anger, but He always loved. No matter their race, what they looked like, what disease they had or what their past was.
Have you ever been tempted (maybe more than tempted) to say “I am not worthy or I’m not good enough for His love!” I know I have!
But then you read about Saul (Paul) or the woman at the well. Look at the apostles or so many of the “chosen ones”. He chose them deliberately and with a purpose. He also chose me, and you, for a special purpose in this thing we call life. We may not see it, but if we let Him lead our lives, His purpose will be accomplished.
He loved us and had a plan for us long before we were formed in our mother’s womb. He created us and will ALWAYS love us! Throughout your day, look at people differently. Look at them as a child of God. They may have problems, but most of us do. They also may have pain that we have no clue about. Love, as He loves us.
In His light,
