1 John 4:20 (ESV)
If anyone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.
*Sometimes it's hard to accept the fact that our ability to show love towards God's people depicts how much we love God. Of course it's easy to love Him because of His goodness in spite of our downfalls, but He wants you to display that same thought process in order to show God's love to His people. We all know that people can be the most unfiltered, rude, fickled, clicky, sneaky, and picky individuals out there...Some of us may feel as though we would rather deal with animals than people, but God is saying that He needs our help in loving even the worse individuals. That love promotes change, and most importantly it draws people to Him. We are put on this Earth to win souls and make a positive impact on ALL people, and not just those we like or feel like dealing with; therefore, I am asking God to help us love in spite of and remember how He loves us in spite of our flaws that need work. How deep is your love?
