February 15: For Love is of God

LOVE NOTE FROM GOD: Beloved, love one another, for love is of Me; and everyone who loves is born of Me and knows Me. (1 John 4:7)

soft hearts

My Beloved,

I know it’s not always easy to love others, especially those who make you believe there’s not much about them to even like a little. But see, you all have flaws and quirks. Sometimes—on those bad days of yours—someone may find it hard to love you, too. Keep in mind, though, that love comes from Me. It originated in my creation of you. It stems from my desire to take care of you, flaws and all. I never gave up on you and never stopped loving you just because you had a bad day, a bad week, or even several bad years. No, I loved you even more through it all.

Those who are hurting the most seem to be the ones you reject the most. Those who are scarred and desperately trying to find answers. They need Me, and you are their link to Me. Through your love for them, you lead them to the cross of My Son, who took all their pain and suffering so they may know life to the fullest. But if you don’t love them, even at their worst, how can they believe that I love them, too? I love them, so please love them too.

Show the world My love by loving them, even on their worst days, just as I love you on yours.
