You are God’s children whom he loves, so try to be like him. Live a life of love just as Christ loved us and gave himself for us 💔 as a sweet-smelling offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:1‭-‬2 NCV

Anything that gets used risks getting broken. But if it is left on a shelf and only admired for its beauty, it will never be used for that for which it was created. It will never fulfill its purpose. When we purpose to love, we will sometimes be hurt.

“If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as it loves its own. But I have chosen you out of the world, so you don’t belong to it. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: A servant is not greater than his master. If people did wrong to me, they will do wrong to you, too. And if they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours, too.

John 15:18‭-‬20 NCV
