Love One Another

Day 11 – Love One Anotherlove-each-other image

Phileo – For the next week I’ll be talking about this.
The phileo love refers to an affectionate, warm and tender platonic love. It makes you desire friendship with someone. It’s the kind of love which livens up the Agape love. Although you may have an agape love for your enemies, you may not have a phileo love for the same people. The translation of the word phileo is love in the noun – form: it is how you feel about someone. It is a committed and chosen love.

God’s word tells us:

Leviticus 19:18 Forget about the wrong things people do to you, and do not try to get even. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. I am the Lord.
Matthew 22:37-39 Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and most important command. And the second command is like the first: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’

It’s about choice and commitment. What choice will you make?

When you’re not loving people it means you’re not like them. That is a choice too. It’s about the attitudes and choices we make.

Choose an attitude of gratitude and commit to loving people. The choice to love will give you more  happiness in life. Who doesn’t want to be happy? Also, choosing love will give you blessings from God.
