7. A Greater LoveRelated Media
When Jesus talks about loving others He answers some questions we don’t typically ask. You see, many of us have already decided who is worthy of our love, and we’re just looking to love them better. We want to know how to better love our spouse, our children, our family, our friends, our co-workers. Normally those on this list are “easy” to love. But Jesus cuts through our presuppositions. Instead of telling us how to love, He tells us who to love. He challenges us to love those who are not normally on our “love radar.” Our love should be showered upon our neighbors AND our enemies, on those we find easy to love and those we find most difficult. That is, after all, the model our heavenly Father has established for us.
