9/21/12 Daily Devotion

1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us.

Why should we love someone other than ourselves? Why should we consider someone else as more important, thus extending them the kind of love that should only be reserved for us? Why should we have to extend love when we never receive it in return? As our scripture reads, we love because He first loved us. We extend the love and compassion of God because He did that for us through His son Jesus on the cross of Calvary. As for all of the other reasons we do not extend love, they are just excuses, and usually they are not even very good ones. We are experts at conjuring up excuses in an attempt to explain why we do not want to do something, but in the end NO excuse will be accepted as we stand before God in judgement.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, allow me to bring Your love into this world, because I know how marvelous it is to have it within my life.
