Loving Others

The Bible tells us many times that we should love other people. God expects us to love all people. But God also expects us to avoid sin. This was confusing to me until I read the verses in our Bible Reading for today.
Verses 22-23 say, “Help those who have doubts. Rescue those who are living in danger of hell’s fire. There are others you should treat with mercy, but be very careful that their filthy lives don’t rub off on you.” This is wise advice for Christians. We should love other people by being involved in their lives and by helping them. But we should show our love for God by not allowing these people’s sins to influence us to do wrong.
We need to be very wise and careful when we interact with people who are not Christians. Love them and help them learn about God. But we should not give into their lifestyle and sin.
