Love Uncensored

Hebrews 13:1-3 ESV

Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.

*Many times, we are so wrapped up in our own affairs that we forget about each other, the lost, and those less fortunate. We desire people to remember our feelings and to love us, but what seeds are you sowing towards others in order to receive love in return? Even more so, how do you view other people, their situation, and their feelings? Is it based on your own understanding, or do you see them the way God does? God constantly emphasizes brotherly love throughout the word, especially in this context; therefore, this has to be one of the key elements of making it in life. This type of love is not about picking and choosing, lust, or loving for a short period of time. This is a steadfast love, with nothing fake about it, that should dwell in our hearts towards our fellow man at all times. Loving others depicts our love for God, and creates peace. How much love do you show daily, or is it about how much love is shown towards you? Place yourself in someone's shoes, and view them as God sees them. Does that change their value?
