What is love? Love is a closeness and friendship toward another person. There are many kinds of love — romantic love, family love, love between friends and a Christian love that helps people who are sick or needy.
In our Bible Reading, Jesus said, “Love each other. You must love each other just as I have loved you” (verse 34b). Jesus was talking about Christian love. He commands us to simply love each other.
We can do many different things to show our love for others. We can make a meal, clean a house, babysit for a neighbor or visit a friend in the hospital. All these things show that we belong to God.
Mother Teresa was a woman who did many wonderful things for people. She said, “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” Show God’s love to other people today. Then they will know that we are God’s children.
