Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.1 John 4:8 NCV
God’s goal is that we would become the most loving people we can be! He wants us to become like him, a God who answers, cares, understands but corrects, is patient but firm, and so on. This says that if we know who God is we will be loving too. When we know God, we see the example of his love, can know and believe his love for us, and so on. This teaches us and gives us the ability to love others! Often times, the way we hurt others, says something about what we are missing from God.
Knowing this, we can ask ourselves, what are ways I’m unloving(what sins do I see I am doing)? What do I need to learn about God to become a more loving person?
