August Stewardship Corner—Love One Another
“I am writing you a new command,” the Apostle John told his readers (1 John 2:8). That command is to love others as we have been loved. “Since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another,” he repeated in 1 John 4:11. God didn’t just say he loved us. “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers” (1 John 3:16). What are you willing to sacrifice in order to bring the message of God’s saving grace to others?
Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, you loved me so much that you sent your Son to earth to became a man and ultimately suﬀer and die on the Cross for my sins. Help me to show my gratitude for who you are and what you did for me by living a life that gives you praise and glory. Help me to have a loving and giving heart. Thank you for enabling me to love others. In your precious name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your stewardship journey!
