This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. (1 John 4:10 NLT)
Some people simply enjoy being with others. They make friends with strangers easily and always are surrounded by friends. Other people are shy or reserved. They have a few friends, are frequently uncomfortable talking with people they don’t know or mingling in crowds. Shy people don’t need to become extroverts in order to love others. John isn’t telling us how many people to love, but how much to love the people we already know. Our job is to love faithfully the people God has given us to love, whether there are two or two hundred of them. If God sees that we are ready to love others, he will bring them to us. No matter how shy we are, we don’t need to be afraid of the love commandment. God provides us the strength to do what he asks.(Tyndal Study Bible)
The most amazing thing for me, as individuals, we are just concerned about ourselves. What’s in it for me? I make myself guilty of this all the time. So when I am writing this I am speaking to myself.Loving and caring is the only thing. This principle does not only apply to people you care about. It is how you approach everything, the taxi driver, your job, the car you drive, literally everything. Just do and approach everything with Love. It reminds me of that principle again, seed time and harvest? Can you image the rewards you will receive if you apply this principle.
It reminds me, some of us don’t think we are good enough to touch and reach out to a other’s. Who is the judge of that? Never discount yourself, you can never tell what a influence you have. The foundation is love, if you do everything with love you will be amazing.
“Lord I pray for love, so that can love others. In Jesus name. Amen”
