“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” – Jesus
Is this how we are known? By our love?
By that love that is patient and kind; is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. By love that does not insist on its own way; is not irritable or resentful … that love?
The love without which I am nothing? … that love?
And must I show that love toward those who are ready to push their convictions down my throat?
