Author of love and compassion,
you never cease to pour out your love onto your adopted sons and daughters.
For you are always helping those, whom ask for your help and granting them their hearts desires.
You Oh Father, are pure love, and you are the perfect example of love and how to love one another. As author of love itself, you have loved me immensely and have offered me the perfect example of love; sacrificing my life for a friend.
Help me to experience your love in my life today. May my eyes be opened to see your loving hand working within the activities I do this day.
Following in your example, may I love others as you have loved me. Help me to follow in your footsteps of love, and to make sacrifices for others.
May I be so inspired and free to be able to love freely, as you freely love everyone of your children. May I not withhold my love from anyone, regardless of where they come from, what they look like, or what they have done to me. May the love you have given me, radiate to others freely, and help me not to be the wall preventing that from happening.
Father of Perfect Love, may I experience your love today, and may I in turn, show that love to others.
Verse to Reflect upon:
"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God."
1 John 4:7
" We love because He first loved us."
1 John 4:19
"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth."
1 John 3: 16-18
"But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked"
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?...No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord"
