Sometimes we are unsure of how to love each other. We know that we need to consider God's call to love one another, but it is not always easy. Mr. Rogers reminded us that, "Love isn't a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now."
God wants us to love each other, but He also knows that we will, at times, struggle with this call. To help us, God shows us His perfect love through the gift of His Son. God accepted us as we were, where we were. He didn't require us to become perfect before loving us. As we set out to love one another, we have to be prepared to begin loving each other as we are now so we can then help each other become better people. With God, we have an example and a guide to show us how to do everything with love!
Look to God, then work to do everything in the love He gives!
Thank You for showing me Your love. Help me to base my actions on this love so that it is reflected in all I do. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
