Have you ever watched a puppy being trained? Usually, the trainer will give the puppy directions, or commands, to help the puppy learn how to do the most important things the trainer wants them to do. Jesus actually gave us one really important direction that He wants us to follow too: To love God with all our heart, soul, and mind. It’s actually the most important thing we’ll do. Because when we do that, we are choosing to be part of God’s purpose for us, which is to love God and to love others. This is God’s plan for the world, and we can be part of it every day by the ways we love God and others.
Today, think of a random act of kindness you can do for someone you care about to show them you love them.
