The word “love” has many meanings. It can describe a strong, passionate feeling or something we casually like. It is also a term used in tennis.
The Bible talks about love for friends, love for family members, sexual love and unconditional love. God loves us with unconditional love. That means He loves us just the way we are.
In 1 Corinthians, chapter 13, Paul tells us more about unconditional love. This type of love is kind, truthful, honest, and forgiving. This love protects, trusts and expects the best. Unconditional love is also patient, faithful and pure.
Our Bible Reading tells us more about God’s love. From these verses we learn that God loved us first and showed His love by sending Jesus to die for us.
God wants us to have unconditional love, too. God wants us to love those people who are hard to love. Remember this as you meet people today.
