Amazing Love

Today’s Bible verses talk about an amazing kind of love. Verse 13 says, “The greatest love people can show is to die for their friends.”
This verse reminds me of people who serve in the American military. These people are willing to fight and die for their own freedom and the freedom of their families. But they are also willing to die for total strangers – people like you and me. That is truly amazing love!
People in the military are willing to die for good people, bad people, teachers, drunks, doctors, truckers, old people and young people – every person who has ever lived. That’s the kind of love God has for us. When Jesus died on the cross, He did it for all people.
Think about the people you will meet today. Some will be your friends. Others will be strangers. Remember to love them all the same way God loves you!
