Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another. 1 John 4:11 NRSV

Thought

God’s love for you is immeasurable. Because God loves you so much, it is your privilege in gratitude to show God’s love to others. Do you love with prejudice or despite your prejudice? Do you love with judgment or openly, without judgment, and solely for the sake of love? How do you react when your love is not received in the spirit in which it is given? How much do you love?

Prayer

God, it is difficult to fathom how much you love me. May the love of my heart, amplified by grief, be the love of Christ I show to others. Amen.

Assurance

Love one another.
