sincere love

The end of everything has come. Therefore, be self-controlled and clearheaded so you can pray. Above all, show sincere love to each other, because love brings about the forgiveness of many sins. Open your homes to each other without complaining. And serve each other according to the gift each person has received, as good managers of God’s diverse gifts. Whoever speaks should do so as those who speak God’s word. Whoever serves should do so from the strength that God furnishes. Do this so that in everything God may be honored through Jesus Christ. To him be honor and power forever and always. Amen. (1 Peter 4:7-11, CEB)

Sincere love?

Can one love something insincerely?

Yes, you can and most of us probably do that every day.

Sincere means honest, pure, true. So how does one not love this way?

To love someone or say you do to get something from them, that is not honest, or pure. We are using that person to get something we want. Love is not about quid pro quo. Love is not looking to gain. We love because we can, not for what we will get.

We need to love all people. This is what God did and does for us. Accepts us where we are and loves us as we are.

So love sincerely.

Loving People. Loving God.
