Sometimes it can be really hard to love some of the people you see every day. Sometimes your little brother takes away your favorite toys and you find it hard to love him. Sometimes your older sister picks on you and you find it hard to love her. God wants us to love our family all the time. God wants us to love those who aren’t very nice to us. God wants us to love everyone.
Why should we choose to love those in our lives who frustrate us and do things that aren’t very nice? Because our God is full of love. We are supposed to love in order to be more like God. God loves us with so much love, He loves us with the greatest love, and He wants us to love those He has put in our lives.
When we love others, when we love our brothers and sisters and friends and parents, we are spreading God’s love around. God is full of love, and He wants us to be full of love, too.
“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.” 1 John 4:7
How can you show a family member that you love them today?
