1 Cor 13:1,4a
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 4.Love is patient and kind... [ESV]

Love is the major distinguishing factor between believers of Christ an unbelievers. This was the commandment that Jesus laid down for us, to love one another just as He loves us.
Apostle John explicitly stated that he who does not love does not know God because God is love. (See 1 John 4:8). This kind of love is not the one shown only to our immediate family members and friends, but the one shown to all, including strangers. Every born again child of God has the love of God shed abroad in His heart by the Holy Ghost. (See Rom 5:5)

One of the proofs of love is patience. Someone once said that the reason why we need patient is because the other person is not perfect. We expect people to forgive us and overlook our excesses, but we find it difficult to do same when they hurt us. Patience is a good-natured tolerance of delay or incompetence of another.

Another proof of love is kindness. Kindness means having a tender and considerate and helpful nature to others. One way to show that we love others is to be kind to them, irrespective of what they had done to us.

Go into today, allowing the love of God find expression in you by being patient and kind to others, even to those that seem not to deserve it. God loved us even while we were yet sinners, do same to others. By so doing, they will see Christ in you.

Prayer: Father, cause your love to find expression in me. Help me to be patient and kind to others, in Jesus name. Amen,

YBP: Mark 1-2
