Love Is

sunset-815270__480What is love?  To me, love is Jesus forgiving Peter for denying that he knew Him.  Love is Jesus inviting Matthew, an unpopular tax collector, to follow Him, learn from Him, and to be His friend.  Love is Jesus washing His friends’ feet.  Love is Jesus multiplying loaves of bread for the hungry masses.  Love is Jesus asking His Father to forgive His persecutors at the same time that He was suffering.  Love is Jesus assuring a humbled, dying thief that he would, that day, be with Him in paradise.  Jesus gave us the perfect example of how to love.  He forgave.  He invited.  He washed.  He multiplied.  He interceded.  He accepted.  Thank you, Jesus.

“And now these three remain: faith hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13
