In 2 John the Bible encourages, no – commands, us to love one another. “And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.”
If you are sitting around waiting to be loved and respected by your, then you are missing the point!
Love. Forgiveness. Grace. Taking consistent committed action in these areas changes your heart. It is a direct reflection of the love that God shows us. And when you choose to approach these things with the same approach God has used with you, then…and only then…will you start to feel love the way it was intended to be.
