Love, what does it mean to you? Loving your neighbour as yourself. What does it mean to you? After all Jesus said “Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen” (John 4:20).
So if we do not love our brother/sister we do not love God. Is there anyone out there whom you do not love? Maybe they did something wrong to you? Maybe the young teen covered in tattoos and piercings? Maybe the homeless man outside your work? Maybe the neighbour who has parties every weekend? Jesus tells us to love them because if we do not love them we do not love God. So how do we show them love? How do we show them God’s love? Do we give a smile to the teen? Buy a meal for the homeless man? Invite the neighbour over for a cup of tea?
Try and make amends with the person who did you wrong? It might not mean much to you but could mean the world to them. So that is my challenge to you. If you find someone hard to love pray to God. Ask God to change your mind and your heart towards them. Try and show them the love that you have so freely been given, so you can truly love God.
