Loving others is a tough challenge. Some days we feel sad, angry, tired, hungry, overwhelmed, or lost. But even amidst those difficult days, God can give us the love we need to help care for others. When we read our Bible, pray, spend time singing praise songs to God, and talking about Him with others, we draw closer to His presence. The Bible tells us that
“But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” 1 John 4:8
If we are doing the right things to be close to God, and God is love, then we must be getting filled up with extra love to give to others, right? Some special and fun ways to love others could be: doing extra chores around the house like picking up toys or cleaning up messes, picking flowers for a neighbor, calling a friend or family member that might be lonely, and sharing some of what you have with others that might need or want it.
Have fun today showing others that “God is love!”
