You are Invited

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. John 15:12

Today you are invited to consider this command given to us by Jesus Himself. Who do you love? Give thanks for these people in your life and what they mean to you. Who do you like? Give thanks for these people too and ask God to help you to love them. Who do you dislike or even hate? Give thanks for these people for they are also created by the Lord God, and ask Him to help you to see them through His eyes and to love even these with His love. What can you do today as an act of love for one of the people whom you do not like to show God’s love to them? How does that act of love affect the way you feel about them?

May God bless you with His courage and love as you reach out to those whom you do not love in both prayer and action today.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
