When it comes to love, we are all called to the same action. There are no if, ands, or buts. It is one of the greatest commandments, and it can not be ignored. We are to love one another as the Lord loves us.
At LiveBeyond, we are continuously reminded by the children in our Johnny’s Kid program to love unconditionally. No matter the person, circumstance, or day of the week. They are always ready to love one another!
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” – Matthew 22:37-39
“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” -Ephesians 4:2
“Love is patient, love is kind.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
“And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” – Colossians 3:14
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” – 1 John 4:7&8
“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” -Romans 12:10
“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:44-45
These scriptures are great reminders to love each other just as the Lord loves us. Let love shine through you just like our Johnny’s Kids!
