A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. (John 13:34-35, KJV)
I’m known for many things. I’m known for being a little lady who likes little things. I’ve been lovingly teased about my tiny purses, tiny shoes, tiny notebooks, my tiny Bible and my new hobby of growing tiny Bonsai trees. Oh, and did I mention I have a tiny dog too.
I’m known for my curly hair and for always having a smile on my face.
I’m known for ministering God’s healing power to the sick through His Word and through prayer. Some even refer to me as the “healing lady”.
But the scripture above is what I want to be known for. He said that all would know that we are His disciples by our love for one another.
I endeavor to be known as one who loves like He loves. The legacy I want to leave is that I loved God and that I loved people. I want to be known by my love.
Father, teach me to love.
I love you.
…and that is how I know you. It inspires me to be the reflection of love that you are daily. I love you!
