What Type of Love Are You Sowing?

John 13: 34-35 (KJV)

34 A new commandment I give unto you. That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

*Of course, we are familiar with the fact that God wants us to love one another. However, are we really grasping what that entails? Love is not just consistent with speaking to others or praying for them when u feel like it...Love can often take you out of your comfort zone. God may provide you with tasks to do for others even though u may not feel like talking to anyone. He can cause you to be called upon to assist, even in a downpour or inconvenient moment. He may also want you to think about stepping outside of the group that you can easily embrace in order to love on someone who is unlovable or doesn't like you. Let's also not forget that showing love doesn't consist of you being nice to someone for your own selfish benefit. God wants you to examine your motive each time you love...Is it for the sake of getting things, or because of the true love of Christ who loved us first? Are you loving when it works in your favor, or are you capable of thinking outside yourself to love someone for the success of their favor? What saddens God is the fact that the body of Christ knows better, but yet love is tweaked based on how you see fit to shape and mold it to your life, but turn a blind eye to what's right. Let's allow God to do the molding and shaping in order to bless others and sow the right seeds for the growth of ourselves.
