Imagine loving others like Jesus loves us…

It’s not always easy to love our own family and friends, let alone people with whom we don’t see eye to eye.

During this season, we may see people default to emotions that are not ones we grieve over, and we may do the same ourselves placing us in the position of crying out in lament.

But Jesus’ call to love gives us the grace and peace to weather the days ahead and see each other through his eyes.

God, forgive me for the times I’ve failed to treat others as your creation.
Forgive me for celebrating unloving behavior in others.
Call me a new level of hope in you alone.
Remind me that You are sovereign and that the wisest choice I can make is to serve You and serve others.
Give me the spirit to lead by example with radical, world-changing love.
AMEN.

Praying for you and with you –
