1 John 4:12
"No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us." ESV
No one has ever seen God. But He has designed things so that our love for others provides a great likeness to Himself. If we express Godly (agape)love to those around us, even to those who don't seem to deserve it at all, we are showing others who God is and that He is love. So many have come to know Him by the love His children have shown to each other and the love we show to those that are undeserving of love. What an honor and a privilege that our Lord has seen fit to fill us with His love so that we can show Him to the world.
Lord, we fall so short of showing Your love to the world. We pick and choose those we think deserve to be loved. Forgive us. You flooded us with Your love when we didn't deserve it. Heal our hearts by Your love so that we will love others and give them a glimpse of Who You are. In Your name we pray, Amen.
