March 25

When Jesus told us that the greatest command is to love God and the second is to love others, He didn’t list any exceptions. Can you love someone who sins differently than you? What if they have a different political view? I’m here to tell you that you can! Jesus loved all people regardless of the way they sinned. However, He did encourage them to turn away from it and sin no more, but that’s because He knows what will happen in the end. You can’t help someone turn from their sin if you butt heads with them. The conversation needs to be open, at least on your part. You’ll get nowhere if you can’t talk. All people wanted to be around Jesus, even the Pharisees, though some were trying to find ways to trip Him up. Regardless of what you might think, you’ll never reach anyone for Jesus if you only go after people who are already saved. Be kind to those who are different, Jesus was!

Jesus answered, "The most important is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." Mark 12:29-31
