Unconditional love of God
  • Isaiah 48:17-19
  • Psalm 1:1-4,6
  • Matthew 11:16-19

Often we judge people according to their behaviors and their appearances. This is not appropriate for us as Christians, because the Lord never did that. He welcomed the people who were rejected by society. He did not care about other people’s opinions because he knew the mind of the Father. Jesus welcomed the weak, rejected, discarded people and made them great in the Kingdom. That is the love of our God. We are not perfect, we may not receive acceptance from society, but if we have faith, it is enough. In my life, many people rejected me and laughed at me because of my weak- nesses. They put me to shame, it affected me, I felt inferior and at times I even thought of ending my life. However, I encountered the Risen Lord, and my life changed because of his love. We are called to love others as God loves us. We are not here to judge but to love like our Master does. Therefore, let us ask the Lord to teach us and give us his heart to accept others in his love.

Prayer: Abba Father, thank you for your unconditional love. May I be able to love my brothers and sisters. Amen.
