”A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
Jesus goes on to say this is how others will know we are disciples of Jesus: by our love for one another. In a healthy family, the love for each member is strong and unconditional. Jesus teaches us to love one another in the same way he has loved us. His love for us is certainly unconditional. As I write this, I am reminded: we don’t look at our own family to understand God’s way of loving- we look to God to understand how we can better love one another on this earth, in and outside our own families.
Father God, you are the head of this family of believers of which I am a small part. Help me to learn how to love each member of this family in an unconditional and Christ-like way. Amen
