God calls us to love each other deeply. To love without conditions and to love with grace. Even in theory this sounds really hard, so to be able to actually put this into practice sounds impossible.
Good thing God is in the business of making the impossible possible.
Recently, I have made it a goal to love God more and by loving Him more I can love people more. A deeper, truer, unconditional type of more.
Instead of praying for them to become a better person, I have been praying for God to help me love them as they are, for Him to change my heart and eyes to see them as the beautiful person God created with their own imperfections and struggles.
Isn’t the struggle to love someone deeper because they don’t act like or aren’t who we think they should be? If they did we would be loving with conditions and this something even evil people do.
As followers of Christ and the beloved children of God, the world will see us as such when they witness our love each other.
In closing, I want to challenge you to love deeper and see what amazing light blooms from it.
