Food For Thought #20 Guest Post

Hello everyone! Today I have a guest post by Bethany from Bright Life By Bethany! Please check out her blog and enjoy this post!



What is love? This is how Merriam-Websters dictionary describes Love:
  • a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person 
  • brotherly concern for others 

"The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."
Mark 12:31

I think sometimes as Christians, we tend to forget this commandment. Let me ask you a question, if I were to point out a random person, lets say in Walmart (or your favorite store) could you honestly say you love them as much as your closest friend? 

God calls us to love everyone, to love like him. Witch at times can be very hard, I mean how do you love that one person that keeps calling you names, or that friend that dumped you for the next best thing? I know its hard. At times it may seem impossible, there will be lots of hurting, sadness, and pain. There is a price to be payed for our faith. It does not promises to be all unicorns and rainbows. God does promise with faith in him comes hope.

"Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character hope. Romans 5:3-4"

I challenge you to love like Jesus. This week, try to show brotherly love to the people (or maybe just one person), around you. You'd be surprised how far a little love can go. 

Have a wonderful week! -Bethany!


P.S. From Mikayla:  Make sure to come back on Monday, I've got an exciting post going up then!
