This week's Growth Challenge verse is John 13:34 (NIV):
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."
How this verse speaks to me...
It is plain and simple: love others. Is it always easy to love others at times? No! Sometimes it is so darn hard to love, especially when folks are getting on your last nerve. I know that I am not always easy to love, I can be downright ugly acting at times. Regardless of my actions or the brat I can be...I am loved. Deeply loved by my Savior.
Challenge: love and be kind...even when you do not feel like it!
