So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
John 13:34-35 NLT
It seems like a different world we’re living in now, within a period of weeks.
One thing we have all seen is hoarding and selfishness and price gouging.
But at least in the town where I live, we have also seen selflessness, caring for one another, and reaching out to help. Sometimes total strangers.
There are groups of ladies all over town (and maybe the country) who are sewing feverishly, making masks for healthcare workers, first responders, and random citizens who need whatever protection may be had from Covid-19.
I have seen several posts on Facebook by people offering to run errands for those who may be more at risk. And they will do this for free. For people they may not know.
First responders, healthcare workers, store employees, drive-up window servers, truckers, and the list goes on, of people working in undesirable circumstances so others may have what they need.
There is a church where I live that serves meals in the name of Jesus to anyone who needs one. I am sure this is being done all over the country.
And I know there are many reaching out in a multitude of ways that we may never know about.
This is love. It is the difference between a godless people with a focus on fighting, controlling, killing, and taking what they want, and those who choose to practice love.
They will know we are Christians by our love.
