Scripture: 1 John 3:18

Key verse: (18) 18 Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.

Reflection: I almost hesitate WRITING a devotion today with this scripture.  What the world needs from us is not more talk about how to be disciples, but simply more love.

So I am not going to write much more. Let’s just love.

Love Family. Love Neighbor. Love Strangers.

Be loving to people you don’t usually notice.

Practice love when you are annoyed, tired or don’t really care.

Love. Just love. Embody the love of God in our lives. Live it out in our hearts, eyes, hands, ears, muscles…at the core of who God created us to be.

Prayer: God, we know you don’t love us because we are good but because you are good. Help us push aside whatever our usual motivations are for loving and just love. Love with each breath. Amen.
