March 7: Love is the
To love unconditionally is sometimes easier said than done. Often times we are hurt most by the people we love. And it may even appear easier to love friends, church members, and co-workers than those closest to us. Because love is so important to God and our walk as Christians, many Scriptures are provided on this subject. Even Paul encourages Christians to strive for unity and mutual appreciation of one another. When we learn the true meaning of Christian love, God richly blesses us. It is God’s requirement tat we develop the characteristics of love because it is essential to the Christian life.
