My reading this morning was Isaiah 36-37, Psalm 76 and 1 Peter 1.
The Scripture that grabbed me was this one:
“… love one another deeply, from the heart.”
from 1 Peter 1:22
We are being instructed to love deeply. Love is something that takes effort. It’s an action for which we can use instruction.
I’ve seen so much lavish love over the past month and it has shown a light on how I could love better, more deeply.
This scripture is really encouraging to me as I move towards loving, and showing love, more deeply. I am learning how I can show love better. I’m also seeing how I can make changes to be less selfish and more love-centered.
Thank you for loving me deeply, for calling out and pulling me close and for showing me your love daily. Help me as I learn to show love differently and more deeply to those you have put in my path. I am so encouraged by your words here and excited for what lies ahead, thanks to you.
Thank you, Father.
