let us practice loving each other,
for love comes from God
and those who are loving and kind
show that they are the children of God, and that they are getting to know Him better."
~ 1 John 4:7 LAB
Bible Commentary: "Everyone believes love is important, but we usually think of it as a feeling. In reality, love is a choice and an action. God is the source of our love; He loved us enough to sacrifice His son for us. Jesus is our example of what it means to love; everything He did in life and death was supremely loving. The Holy Spirit gives us the power to love. God's love always involves a choice and an action, and our love should be like His.
"How well is our love for God displayed; in the choices we make and the actions we take?"
