Have you ever heard anyone say that you can’t love someone if you don’t understand them? NOT TRUE!
God has commanded that we love one another…
John 13:34-35 (NKJV)
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
There are on caveats or conditions with this command…we just gotta love one another y’all!
God loves us no matter what we do. And, He doesn’t love your worst enemy any less than He loves you.
So remember this.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO UNDERSTAND SOMEONE TO LOVE THEM!
If you’re married, there are some things about your spouse that you’ll never understand.
There will be things about your children or your siblings that will always bother you, and bother you a lot.
There will always be people who’s behavior will never make sense to you.
There will always be people whose behavior you will never condone.
There will always be people who will hate you for absolutely no reason…
And we still have to love all of them! We must still always pray for God to meet them at their every point of need.
We must always pray that they submit to Gods. WORD…WILL..LOVE and SALVATION.
We must always pray that they learn what pleases God…
Ephesians 5:10 (NIV)
10 and find out what pleases the Lord.
We must always pray that they grow in the wisdom and knowledge of God, so they can truly know Him better…
We must always pray that they get to truly KNOW GOD BETTER…
Ephesians 1:17 (NIV)
17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[a] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
As a matter of fact, that’s what makes love REAL When we can truly want the best according to God’s will for someone in the most conditions that challenge love the most…because that’s how God continues to love us.
