February Devotional on Love
Scripture: “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8
Devotional Thought: As I sit here with my oldest daughter bouncing jokes off each other as we visit, I am reminded of the everlasting love and loyalty that I have for my family and friends. Love naturally comes easy for us but at times can be hard depending on the person or situation at hand. For God, it comes easy. God loved us so much that he sacrificed his one and only son for us. That is definitely unconditional love. If we have faith in God then the love we have should flow freely from us. God states that we should love one another just as he loves us.
Action Point: In what way can I actively love others this week? How can I love others when I am stressed or irritated? How can I reflect God’s love to others?
Prayer: Dear God, We pray that you would continue to bless us and help us to love unconditionally just as you do. Help us to show our family and friends that we love them. In your name we pray, Amen.
