The best you can be

Do you, as an individual try to be the best you can be, by loving God and loving all those around us, and those who we encounter during our life?

God commanded us to

Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

1 John 13:34 (NIV)

To love one another is to do God’s will. God loves each one of us unconditionally, as so He requires us to to the same, to love one another.

That’s hard isn’t it?

It’s easy to love those who treat us well, and those who love us. However it is incredibly difficult to love those who hurt us physically or emotionally, disrespect us or our family, or show hatred towards us for any reason.

God knows it’s hard for us to love everyone, but He has promised to always be with us and supporting us, we simply need to trust Him. He has not promised that by trusting him, we will have an easier life, he’s simply promised that no matter what, he will be with us.

So pray for God to help you to see the best in everyone; to forgive those who hurt or upset you; to love your friends, family and those who do not love you; and to strengthen your belief that God will help you to be the best person you can be.

Be the best version of you that you can be by trusting God to help you.
