Galatians 5:1, 13-14 – For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery. For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become slaves to one another. For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Paul reminds us that we are called to express a radical love for one another. As you come in contact with people today, contemplate how this passage informs your interaction with them.
Understanding God, you call us to a depth of love for one another that can be uncomfortable for us. Continue to nudge us toward your will. Amen.
