Greater Love

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends”

(John 15:13, NIV)

Memorial Day honors all those who have given their lives in service for our country. As we remember what these brave men and women did, let’s honor the gift they have given us by choosing to show greater love to others.

I’m so thankful that Jesus loved us enough to lay down His life so that we could spend eternity with Him.The ultimate expression of love. When we let go of having our own way, or when we put the needs and desires of others above our own desires, that’s a form of laying down our life. Today, look for opportunities to put others first. That not only pleases God, but develops our hearts, as well as, stores treasures for us in heaven.


Father God, thank You for being the ultimate example of love. Help me find ways to lay down my life for others. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
