Taught by God to love one another

You . . . are taught by God to love one another.​
1 Thess. 4:9.

Whether young or old, brothers and sisters who are discouraged or depressed or who face other trials need our attention, encouragement, and comfort. (Prov. 12:25; Col. 4:11)

We give proof that we truly love our brothers when we show by words and deeds that we have deep concern for

“those related to us in the faith.” (Gal. 6:10)

The Bible foretold that “the last days” of this wicked system of things would be marked by a spirit of selfishness and greed. (2 Tim. 3:1, 2)

As Christians, we must therefore work hard to grow in our love for God, for Bible truth, and for one another. True, we may at times have minor disagreements with fellow believers. However, what a blessing it is for all in the congregation when love motivates us to settle any differences in a loving manner!

32 But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate,+ freely forgiving one another just as God also by Christ freely forgave you.+
(Eph. 4:32)

14 But besides all these things, clothe yourselves with love,+ for it is a perfect bond of union.+
(Col. 3:14)

Therefore, may we continue to have intense love for Jehovah, his Word, and our brothers. w17.05 21 ¶17-18
