By This

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

—John 13:35

 

Yesterday, a friend came by my house to deliver a beautiful arrangement of flowers in a lavender colored vase.

Tonight, another friend loaned us their van so our entire family could travel together to a funeral out of state.

There are cards sitting on my piano from friends who are comforting and encouraging me and my family.

Another friend brought a wreath and placed it on my door.

It has been four days since we lost a loved one.

We have had four days of kindness.

Four days of love and consideration.

Four days of caring and consolation.

Four days of provision.

These things and many more are but a testimony of God’s love and the faithfulness and generosity of His people.

By these acts and those even before this time, our friends are showing that we love one another.

By these acts, also, others will know that they are followers of Jesus as they demonstrate His love.

 

 

love one another
