Day 13 of CCC's 21 Day Bible Challenge. John 13.
John 13: 34 - 35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
Father in Heaven, if only we humans whom you have entrusted this world to would do this. You dreamed of a world filled with love . . . not hatred or competition or envy or strive. Forgive us for what we have done to your world. Forgive me for my contribution to your broken world. Help me to love the way you love. Wipe all pride and judgement and selfishness from my heart. Eliminate the rascism and prejudice that keeps me from truly loving my neighbors.
By this all people will know you are my disciple, if you have love for one another.
