Scripture: We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19
Prayer: Lord, you loved us before we ever knew You. May we accept Your love into our lives and let it overflow from our hearts and out to our households, our neighborhoods, businesses, and communities. Amen
Application: Parents, bosses, teachers, and leaders can learn a tremendous amount from the example of Jesus Christ. Thousands of years after His death, we are still in amazement at His incredible sacrifice for us.
Why do we love Him and follow Him? Because He loved us first.
