Loving people for me has never been the easiest thing to do but when we follow God it makes it a lot easier. We read so many scriptures telling us and showing us how God loves us and by his example we’re able to go and do and love others. John 3:16 for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. The scripture is one of the most widely used scriptures in the Bible and very well should be. This shows the biggest act of love that we could ever hear about or see. It can be a struggle at times to love others especially when people are yelling at you or being deceitful and sometimes for no reason. I don’t know that I would lay my life down for someone who is treating me badly. 1 John 4:11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. If we are having trouble finding love in our hearts for people who hurt others and I mean then take a knee and pray asking God how you can love that person or persons. He will show you the way. I know he’s helped me many times in my journey with him. If anyone can change hearts it is our Lord Jesus Christ. Please join me in prayer. Dear heavenly father there is a lot of meanness out there in this world and a lot of hatred but we can rise above these things with your help. Please help us to find love in people who are needing your help. Help us to grow stronger in your love. In Jesus precious name amen.
