Firstly, what is love?

Biblical love, the truest form of love, is characterized as selflessness, forgiveness, and compassion. Moreover, biblical love extends beyond romantic or familiar relationships to encompass all people, including enemies (Matthew 5:44). It is not merely an emotion but a deliberate choice and action, as emphasized in Jesus' commandment to love one another as He loved us (John 13:34-35).


When we choose to love others as ourselves, we mirror the character of God, who IS love (1John 4:8). This choice not only strengthens our relationship with God but also transforms us, into deepening our connections with others, fostering inner healing, harmony, empathy, and unity. Being loving towards ourselves and others is crucial for several reasons:


  1. Inner Peace: When we treat ourselves with love and kindness, we cultivate inner peace and contentment. This inner peace radiates outward, positively impacting our interactions with others.

  2. Improved Relationships: Practicing love and forgiveness enhances our relationships by fostering understanding, empathy, and trust. It creates a supportive environment where conflicts can be resolved more easily.

  3. Emotional Wellbeing: Love promotes emotional well-being by reducing stress, anxiety, and negativity. It encourages a mindset of gratitude and appreciation, leading to greater overall happiness. Love creates a safe space for individuals to express their feelings and vulnerabilities without judgement.

  4. Personal Growth: Choosing love means embracing growth and learning from our experiences. It allows us to recognize our own worth and potential, empowering us to pursue our goals and dreams with confidence.

  5. Spiritual Growth: Moving from a place of love from a biblical perspective is profoundly beneficial as it aligns our actions with the divine principles of compassion, forgiveness, and grace. Choosing love empowers us to overcome bitterness, resentment, and strife, leading to spiritual healing and wholeness.

  6. Positive Impact: Loving actions have a ripple effect, influencing those around us and inspiring them to also choose love. By being a beacon of love and compassion, we contribute to a more harmonious and compassionate world.

So how do we show love in our daily choices?

We can choose loving actions by actively listening, showing appreciation, incorporate small acts of kindness into your day, practicing self compassion, and extending grace even in challenging situations. It's all about making intentional efforts to prioritize the well-being and happiness of those around us, while also caring for our own needs.

When we embody this spirit of love, we not only honor God's commandments of loving others as we love ourselves (Matthew 22:39), but we also experience the transformative power of divine love in our lives and the lives of those around us. Overall, prioritizing love in our daily decisions and interactions, brings about a multitude of benefits. It fosters connection, understanding, and a deeper appreciation for the beauty called life.


Let's cultivate a world where love guides our every choice. Choose love, always.
