January 17th - Extreme Love...Is Not Proud or Self-focused

Luke 6:32
For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.

What is it that makes us hesitant to make new friends? It could be a fear of rejection, or maybe we just don’t enjoy being around people who are different from us. Both of those excuses come out of an obsession with self. Anyone can love those who love them or who are like them, but the challenge is to develop EXTREME LOVE in our lives. If you are secure in God’s love, you can put “self” aside, and reach out to even the unlovely. Make a new friend today!
