A New Commandment: Love Each Other

John 1331 After Judas had gone, Jesus said:

Now the Son of Man will be given glory, and he will bring glory to God. 32 Then, after God is given glory because of him, God will bring glory to him, and God will do it very soon.

33  My children, I will be with you for only a little while longer. Then you will look for me, but you won’t find me. I tell you just as I told the people, “You cannot go where I am going.” 34  But I am giving you a new command. You must love each other, just as I have loved you. 35 If you love each other, everyone will know that you are my disciples.

Kids Korner: Love one another (May 15th)

Read John 13:31-35 with your family.

Jesus told us we were supposed to love one another. The love Jesus was talking about wasn’t just a feeling, it was meant to be an action. Christianity is about love in action… that is our faith. We love and worship God, and we show that love by how we treat others.

Active love looks like:
– taking care of the environment
– helping strangers and others in our community
– telling others how important it is to make sure people have food to eat, clothing to wear, and a safe place to live
– being kind to animals
– showing that we are all the same in God’s eyes, no matter how we dress, the colour of our skin, or what language we speak
