Love One Another
At least 21 times in scripture we’re encouraged to “love one another.” Love is other-centered–“I want what’s best for you, no matter what.” Think of the relationships in your life where you’re willing to do that. Are you willing to do that for your spouse, for your children, for certain friends? How big is the circle of your love? God’s vision for us is for that circle to expand, so that we become able to love everyone, even our enemies. That can’t happen in our own strength, but only by time in prayer, by first experiencing the Father’s love for us.
