The same love that God gives to you, you are to offer to everybody else that you come in contact with. It’s not an option or a suggestion. It’s a command: “Now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other” (John 13:34). If you are a follower of Christ, you must love everybody — whether you like them or not — in the same way that Christ loved you. That means you are to accept them completely, love them unconditionally, forgive them totally, and consider them extremely valuable.
Loving others in this way will transform your relationships!
The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13:7, "Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance." This is how God loves you. God never stops being patient with you. God never stops believing in you. God never stops hoping for the best in your life. God never gives up on you. That’s what God expects you to do with everybody else. “Love never gives up.” That means love endures the worst. It means you can look at the other person and say, “You can throw everything at me, but I’m going to keep loving you, no matter what.” “Love never loses faith.” That means it expresses belief. You tell someone, “Even though we’re having a tough time, I will never stop believing in you.” “Love is always hopeful.” That means love expects the best. Are you expecting the best in your relationship, or have you settled for less than the best? "Love endures through every circumstance." That means love never stops being patient. It extends grace. You need to offer grace to others.
Dear God, help me to accept others, just as you’ve accepted me. Help me to love others unconditionally, just as you have loved me. Help me to forgive others totally, just as you’ve forgiven me. And help me to value others as much as you value me. Help me to extend grace to and express faith in the people around me. Help me to expect the best in others, and help me to endure the worst when it happens. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen 🙏
