We are a deeply divided country, and the hatred rages on social media. It’s in politics, on Twitter, and even our President is not immune to the constant bickering.
How much different would the world be if we took it upon ourselves to actually love one another? I don’t mean giving lip service to the idea. I mean actually doing it.
Jesus said, as recorded in the Book of John, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
As I have loved you…Think about that.
“For God so loved the world that he gave His only Son…”
Jesus also said, “When you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!”
Who are “the least of these”?
Your neighbor? Mow his lawn.
The person behind you in the drive thru? Pay for his meal.
The person who cut you off in traffic? Ease up on him. You don’t know what his day was like.
We CAN make a difference.
