“Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.”
Leviticus 19:18 KJV
William M. Golden wrote “A Beautiful Life”. “Each day I’ll do a golden deed, By helping those who are in need, My life on earth is but a span, And so I’ll do the best I can, The best I can.” Are we doing our best every day? Are we helping those in need? Everyone needs to be encouraged.
May God help us to be an encouragement to each other. What about Jesus? Are we encouraging Him by serving Him? Does He know we love Him by loving one another unconditionally? It is not an option to love others unconditionally. Jesus has commanded us to love unconditionally.
We read in the Bible. “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you” (John 15:12-14). Are we loving others unconditionally as He has commanded us?
Heavenly Father, please help us to love others unconditionally as Jesus has commanded us to love. Please comfort and encourage all who are lonely, discouraged and broken hearted. Thank You for loving me and for adopting me into Your family. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
