Open a magazine.
Turn on the television.
Listen to a sermon on Sunday morning.
There is a chance you will be bombarded with man’s definition of love.
This perverted, self-centered love is so prevalent in our society. Many will live a lifetime without experiencing love that is fruitful, not destructive.
Loving others unconditionally begins with receiving Papa’s unconditional love— Christ. Only Christ’s love can transform you.
Reassuring you that Papa will…
Never forsake you!
Resurrect you dying soul from the ashes of loss, grief and despair.
Papa’s love is both tender and firm, comforting and confronting. Challenging you to obey Papa at all times and in all circumstances.
How can you love others unconditionally?
Respect others positive contributions to the betterment of mankind, whether secular or spiritual.
As much as it is possible, live in peace with everyone.
Encourage those who feel alienated.
Help the weak and oppressed.
Patiently accept others shortcomings.
Let your love be sincere— a real thing. Hate what is evil. Loathe all ungodliness. Turn in horror from wickedness but hold fast to that which is good. Love one another with brotherly affection as members of one family. Giving precedence and showing honor to one another.
