Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Something I definitely need to be reminded of…I think we all do…in these times of stupidity, bigotry, and opinionated-hate.
You can’t call Jesus your Lord when you refuse to obey Him.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
How do we imagine what it means to be young?
Loving God leads to loving others, but loving others doesn’t necessarily lead to loving God.
