Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

-1 John 4:7

 

As we move through Holy Week I have shared some resources with families to talk about the parts of Jesus’ life that happened this week. One resource I shared is an Easter Story nesting egg and book. Each day you open the egg to find another smaller egg and reveal the story of that day. Today’s passage connects with the deeper message of Jesus’ ministry and how we are called to love one another.

How do you show love? What is your favorite way to receive love? Jesus brought a radical message of unconditional love and it wasn’t always well received. 

 

You likely have people in your life that are easy to love and give love so freely to you. You may also have people in your life that you find challenging to love. 

 

I imagine that at times Jesus even found it challenging to love, but he found a way. He was creative in his approach when things were hard or people weren’t as receptive. 

 

How can you be persistent, patient, creative, and unconditional in sharing love this week?

Go and give it freely following Christ’s example.

Prayer for Today

 

Loving God, thank you for the many ways you love us and our neighbors. Guide us this week to be open to the unusual ways we can share your love. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
