|He First Loved Us|
|We love him, because he first loved us. If a man sayeth, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar. For he that loveth not his brother, whom he hath seen, how can he love God, whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God, love his brother also.||(1 John 4:19-21)|
Our Father is a God overflowing with love for all His children. Because He first loved us, we love Him since He created and taught us what love is. To learn how to live a life of love and why we need to show love and kindness to others, we must read, study and learn God's Word, The Bible. In doing so, we will come to know why we cannot show hatred toward others: for if we hate one another, we don't truly love God. And if we desire the gift of eternal life and rewards in heaven, we need to follow Our Father's commandments which include loving our brethren as we love God.
