“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:18
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
Love defines Jesus. He loves us so much that “he laid down his life for us” (verse 16). We are called to love as Jesus loved – unconditionally. It’s easy to be annoyed with a co-worker or frustrated with you spouse, but Jesus died for him or her, too. We are all undeserving but have been showered with the grace of God.
