You Made Us to Love

A Truth to Live – God is love and loving God means loving others. From the beginning of time God’s original design was for me to love others.

I John 4:7 says, “Let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.”  This is how I can know that the power of the Gospel rules in me – if I have love for all people regardless of their race, religion, gender, or behavior.  You loved me, and I am to love others.

Scripture – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first commandment. And second is like it:  Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:37-39

Prayer – Today I commit to love You with every part of my being.  I will use all my energy to grow in my relationship with You – learning and listening for Your voice throughout my day.  

And, just as I will use my heart, soul and mind to love You, I will also use my all to love others.  I will begin today looking at my family, my colleagues, my schoolmates, my neighbors, my friends and Your world through the eyes of love. Lord, I ask that You pour Your love out on me today so that I can give it freely to others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
