Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.
– Romans 12:9
How often do you really love other people? This verse talks about not pretending to love others, but to really love them. What does real love look like?
Real love looks out for what is best for the other person. It doesn’t just say and do what makes other people happy. Real love stays the same. It doesn’t change based on how someone treats you or how you feel. When you love someone with God’s love, it doesn’t matter how that person responds, rather what matters is how you respond.
Real love, the God kind of love isn’t always easy to live out. It takes guts. It takes putting aside what feels right at the moment and responding to that person in love. When you choose to love, it makes a difference, especially to those who don’t know Christ. Choose to demonstrate crazy love today to someone who might be hurting. You never know who you might win for Christ by choosing to love!
