“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” (John 13:34)

Aren’t you glad God’s love stretched even to you? Aren’t you amazed that His love covered a multitude of your sins? Aren’t you relieved that He loved you even when He hated the things you did and the way you were?

If you would be as your heavenly Father you will not be a respecter of persons. You will treat everyone, your enemies as well as your friends, those you like as well as those you don’t like, the same way – with love.

Love others not according to who they are or what they deserve. Love others at their worst, at their most unloveable and unlikeable. Love them even as God loved you. Give them their first dose of amazing grace.
