1 John 4:7 (NKJV)
Knowing God through Love
7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
Love is something that you cannot keep but that you have to give away. As you start your day, let’s think about acts of love. Being friendly and kind, encouraging someone that is feeling down, giving someone a hug when they feel dreadful. By smiling at a stranger who looks like clouds of “thunder and lightning” are all around them.
We see in Ephesians 4 verse 2 “be completely humble and gentle; be patient; bearing with one another in love.” 1 Peter 4 verse 8 “above all, love each other deeply because love covers over a multitude of sin.” As you focus and think on these precious words today, may I say ‘I Love you!” May your day be filled with a hug, kisses, and loads of friendly people, smiles, and hugs coming to you today.
O Lord, thank you that we can come in humble prayer to You, help us to give our love away so that others can see You in our own lives. Strengthen those who are struggling today, thank You for loving us anyway. In the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Amen
