  •  Beloved, let us love one another. (1 John 4:7)

    God’s standard is love one another. We are not just to love the lovable, the healthy, those within a 10-mile radius or us or just the middle class. God wants us to accept one another – warts and all.

    Twelve times in the New Testament we are told to love one another. Why 12 times? Love does not come naturally. It is hard for us to carry out this command.
