LOVE, it’s the greatest commandment according to God’ Word. In Matthew 22: 37 it says, “You shall Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment and the second is like it: You shall Love your neighbor as yourself.” Needless to say love is important to God, so it should be important to us as well.
The past two years, I have chosen a word to focus on for the year. My One Word for this year is Love; to Love God, to Love Others, and to even Love Myself well this year. You would think that love would be an easy thing to do, but it’s not because life is messy and things happen that cause us to put up walls and mistrust. These things can at times prevent us from loving well. We can always ask God to help us when we can’t do this in our own strength. When we struggle to love God, love others, and even love ourselves, let’s take a moment to turn to God and ask him to help us LOVE.
