Topic: Love Everyone

TODAY’S READING
John 13:1-17

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Jesus calls me to look beyond earthly divisions and to love all people.

I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. – John 13:15 (NIV)

I can vividly imagine the foot-washing scene in the Gospel of John: Jesus taking off his outer garment, wrapping a towel around his waist, kneeling to remove the disciples’ sandals, and then washing and drying one dusty foot after another. My eyes well up at the image. If the Savior of the world was willing to take on such a humble task, we should all be willing to serve others too, regardless of who we are and who they are.

Following Jesus’ example of servant leadership means being willing to engage with those around us no matter their background. Because of Jesus’ love for us, we can show love to everyone, no matter our similarities or differences. So let us strive to show others a love that says, “We are more alike than we are different.” A love that respects everyone’s right to have differing opinions. A love that asks, “How can I help you?” A love that acknowledges our own weaknesses and shortcomings. A love that focuses on Jesus.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Heavenly Father, help us to remember your sacrifice for us. Guide us to spread the love and joy of Christ to all we meet. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
To love others as Christ does
