7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:7-8, NIV)
I had this note in one of my digital Bibles:
It is a high calling to love. We are called to love those not like us. We are called to bring blessing into their lives. When we will LOVE those NOT like us, and look to the good of those NOT like us, we will understand the immense, intense love of God.
