Born to Love

Day 18 – Born to Love

This next section I’ll be sharing about storge love, which is: a kind of familial and brotherly love. This is the love that parents naturally feel for their children; the love that members of the family have for each other; or the love that friends feel for each other.

romans 12-10 imageIn Romans 12:10 we find an interesting compound: philostorgos is translated as “be devoted.” The word combines philos and storge and means “to cherish one’s kindred.” Believers in Christ, children of the same heavenly Father, are to “be devoted to one another in love.” As part of God’s family, we should show loving affection toward each other and be prone to love.

I know. Sometimes it is tough. However, we must lay aside our selfishness and learn to be loving. Devoted even. Jesus did. So should we!

Prayer: Dear Father Yahweh, teach us to be devoted to one another in brotherly love, honoring the other before ourselves. Teach us to be like You! In Your precious name, amen.
