“If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?” Matthew 5:46

Love outside the lines this Christmas season. Look for someone who isn't in your usual circle of friends: a neighbor, someone who has fallen on hard times, or someone who seems lonely. Then extend Jesus' love even if it means getting a little uncomfortable.

God didn't keep His love behind the borders of Heaven.

Love came down. Jesus was compelled to become one of us and even die for our rescue. Jesus didn’t just love His family and followers—everyone was included. 

Lord Jesus, thank You for compassionately reaching down to rescue me. Help me love others like you’ve loved me. Amen.
