          On one of the first devotions I made on here, I shared with you that we were made to be courageous, and we are. But we are also made to love. We must love everything that God loves. That annoying person in your class, you should love him/her. He/she is God's child also. We are all God's children, it doesn't make a difference if we believe or not. God created everyone! Personally, i have said that i hate people a few times. Or a lot. Okay, so we all have said we hate someone. But what is hate, really? Hate is the feeling where you seriously disgust and dislike someone. It's when you would be able to do nothing and watch them die, not flinching. Or if they get abused, you wouldn't care.

      Let me tell you, a Christian should not feel these things. No one should feel these things! That is inhuman, so terrible and just plain disgusting. Humans were made for relationship, for love and socializing with other humans. Especially Christians. We are here to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We are representing Him! Is hating people a way to show Jesus' love?

Verse: 1 John 4:7-8
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love

Verse2: John 13:34-35
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.

Songs:  Made To Love by Toby Mac
Chorus;
I was made to love You
I was made to find You
I was made just for You
Made to adore You
I was made to love
And be loved by You
You were here before me
You were waiting on me
And you said you'd keep me
Never would you leave me
I was made to love
and be loved by You

Have a Christ-centered day!
