If you have followed me for very long, then you know I have this recurring theme... people judge Christians by the way they love others. Period. Jesus said they would and they do.
This kind of love shows grace to people, even when they don’t deserve it - especially when they don’t. This kind of love goes the extra mile when it requires sacrifice, not just when you have time. This kind of love listens, really listens, to others even when they disagree- especially when they disagree. This kind of love isn’t selfish, it’s kind and full of compassion instead of judgment. This kind of love brings people together rather than separating them. The verse that comes before this one is “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
