1 John 4:19
We love each other because God loved us first.

How have I made my love for others conditional, based on what they do (or do not do) for me?

How can I love others based on God’s love for them, instead of limiting my love to my feelings (or lack of feelings) for them?

Ask the Lord to lead you to focus on one relationship you want to make “less conditional.”

Lord, it is so easy for me to base my love for others on the quality of their love for me. I limit my love based on keeping score. You call me to put down my scorecard and look at the love you showed on the cross. You literally loved and forgave your enemies. I may not be that far along but help me take a step in that direction today. In the strong name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
