“We love because He first loved us.”
I have always held a special place in my heart for this verse. The idea that God loves us so much no matter what we’ve done or who we are is amazing to me. Love is very special. We wouldn’t have it without the One who created it. God loved us so much that He sent His only Son to save us from sin. That is true love. We would not know what love was without God. And I’m not just talking about romantic love, I’m also talking about the love a mother or father has for their child, or the love a friend has for another friend. Love is universal. We should always show love to others because God constantly shows us His love, and our vocation in life. This is known as our telos. We are created to follow this telos and show love to everyone we meet. Take a break today and decide how you are going to live out your telos and show God’s love.
