Chinese Characters (6)

Jesus was an amazing teacher. He showed us truth based on His own life. In today’s Bible verses, we see that Jesus shared a new way to understand His love. Jesus told His disciples about this true kind of love. The next day He showed them this kind of love by dying on the cross.
The traditional Chinese character for this special kind of love is a very beautiful and meaningful character. It shows a large animal like a bear or a tiger. Under it is a person’s heart and then the part that means “friend.”
Jesus gave up His life to show us His great love. In verse 13 of our Bible Reading, Jesus said, “The greatest love people can show is to die for their friends.” A person who really loves his friend is willing to protect that friend from something dangerous.
Ask God to help you be ready to sacrifice and show His love to other people today.
