What does it take to love like Jesus?

“This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you.”  John 15:12

 

Jesus poured His whole life into His disciples.  He did not allow distractions to affect the quality of His relationships with each individual. He was extremely focused on the task at hand which was to teach them and to pour out His extravagant love upon them, that they would be transformed by His love and become a people who love extravagantly.

 

In a world full of distractions, it can be very difficult to shut off the noise and enjoy the moments of life.  It has seemed that the digital age has consumed us and distractions are stealing the quality of our relationships.

 

One of the greatest ways we can show love to the people in our lives is to be fully present.  To love is to give of yourself: your time, attention and focus. We need to learn to put away the cell phone, Facebook, social media and constant texting and begin investing our time and attention into the ones we love.  Let us become women who extravagantly love our families and friends and give of our undivided time, attention and focus!
