Love Authentically, Mentoring Moments the 1 min blog
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God. 1 John 4:7 (NKJV)1 John 4:7 (NKJV)
This is part three of our voyage on the Love B.O.A.T. B is for loving boldly, O is for keeping your heart open and this week A is for loving authentically.
Years ago I heard a message called “A Feel for the Real.” In it I learned how the U.S. Treasury trains people to spot counterfeit money by becoming experts on real money. What a novel idea!
1 John 4:7 says that love is of God. Just like all authentic money comes from one source, all authentic love comes from God. That same scripture goes on to teach that everyone who really loves is born of God and knows God.
Leaders, we have some enjoyable work to do spending time with God, getting to know Him and receiving His love for us. It’s the only way we can love others authentically.
Success and Progress!
