A Radical Love
GOD PAUSE: Growing up, I didn't find it hard to love my Dad and Mom. Why? Because they loved me. It's a lot like God that way. Because of His incredible love to me, I can easily love Him in return. But, when it comes to people --- ah yes, there comes the real challenge. But Jesus Himself calls us to the challenge of loving our neighbors, even if they don't love or treat us in the opposite way. Jesus says to love like our heavenly Papa. He blesses those who don't even love Him. Dear Lord, you call me and my friend to a radical kind of love. So we need Your help. We will live in that love to those around us today. And just maybe that might open up some eyes to the reality of You. Amen and amen.
