Love Does No Harm

Love Does No Harm

Jesus replaced the world’s overarching cultural value of pursuing honor with a kingdom value of love as the highest and greatest good. What does love look like in real life? God’s love was revealed at the cross. Even to those who crucified Him, Jesus did not retaliate. Decades later, Paul reiterated Jesus’ words about loving others as fulfilling God’s law. Jesus calls his followers to love God, to love one another, and to love our enemies. Have you adopted God’s highest value as your own? How will you put it into practice today?

Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. —Romans 13:10

Prayer: Father, we only have to look to the cross to see what Your love looks like: the life of Your Son poured out for us. Today, may we be led by love, not because it’s easy, but because it reflects You. We pray in the name of Jesus, who loved us and gave Himself for us, amen.
