What do you have to say?πŸ’¬

What do you have to say for yourself?

Taken from the commentary in my NIV: These verses aren’t talking about disliking a disagreeable Christian brother or sister. There will always be people we will not like as well as others. John’s words focus on the attitude that causes us to ignore or despise others, to treat them as irritants, competitors or enemies. Christian love is not a feeling but a choice. We can choose to be concerned with people’s well being and treat them with respect, whether or not we feel affection toward them. If we choose to love others God will help us to express our love.

I add this because of all that is happening in our world today. There is a reason we are called to be the light.

Matthew 5:16 King James Version (KJV)
16Β Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
