“Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.” (Message)
“Live in true devotion to one another, loving each other as sisters and brothers. Be first to honor others by putting them first.” (The Voice)
“Love each other deeply. Honor others more than yourselves.” (NIV)
Three translations. One verse.
Love each other.
This has been something that may have been missed in this time of quarantine. Being stuck in your own home is the way a lot of us live normally with our own selfishness. Although we would rarely admit it, everything is about us.
But life was never about you. It’s about giving your life away.
How can you love others during this time? Maybe sacrifice a Netflix show to zoom call a friend. Drop off some treats to your neighbor or friend. Cook a meal to a friend who can’t cook.
Spend some time confessing your selfishness to the Lord. Ask Him to help you learn how to be unselfish with your time and put others first.
Now go love.
