I know loving others is risky, but what good is the love you have for Me if you will not let Me love others through you? What good is all that you conquered and accomplished if you have not loved well? The truth, My precious girl, is that anything you accomplish minus love will equal nothing in the end. I have loved you with an unconditional, everlasting love. Nothing that you say or do changes the way I feel toward you. Now I’m asking you to love others most when they deserve it the least–the same way I love you. I know what I request from you is not easy, but if you will draw on My strength, you will find that perfect love casts out fear. Even if those you love let you down, I will reward you for all eternity because of your choice to love them in a way that brought glory to Me.

Your Father who has a never-ending love for you

If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it;a but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. – 1 Corinthians 13:3

Treasure of Truth

What good is love if you don’t give it away?
