Can't Get Enough of Love
About your love for one another we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other. And in fact, you do love all of God’s family throughout Macedonia. Yet we urge you, brothers and sisters, to do so more and more. I Thessalonians 4:9-10
Paul urges the people to love—even more than they have in the past. Why? I see why as I consider the flip side of this coin. I have been so blessed to have people who love me. From family and friends to fellow Christians. Nothing means more to me than to have people who care about me, people who would do anything to help me. When I have gone through life’s valleys, there have always been people who have reached out in love. This love means more than anything—especially when we are hurting. So Paul calls for the Thessalonicans (and us) to be those people. Bring that love wherever you go. Let others know what it is to be so loved. In so doing we help others to see God.
