The Greatest Commandment

Love one another. Sometimes that's easy and sometimes not. But that is what God tells us to do and it is the most important thing we are to do. God says, 'the GREATEST of these is love.' It's more important than anything else. Even when we're really, really mad or hurt, by or at, others we're supposed to love them. We are supposed to love one another as God loved us. . I don't always feel loving toward mom, but then I think about neither of us is perfect, and I love her just the way she is. That is how God loves us. He loves us with all our faults, flaws, and imperfections, and even when we do something really bad. And He forgives us. He loves us so much He even died for us. Do you love someone enough that you would die for them? I think if we see others as a child of God, instead of the imperfect side of them it makes it easier to love one another. So, the next time you're having a hard time loving take a step back and think about others as a child of God. It changes your perception. It really does!! And be sure to say, "I love you" today. Love, Beau
