How? by choice to show true/agape love to fellow-breathing-fragile-life…day in and day out..

How can we demonstrate our love in practical ways? Consider the example of Jesus. During his earthly ministry, he gave special attention to lowly ones. He reached out to those with physical infirmities—the lame, the blind, the deaf, and the speechless. (Matt. 11:4, 5) Jesus took pleasure in teaching spiritually hungry ones, those who were viewed by the Jewish religious leaders as “accursed people.” (John 7:49) He loved these lowly ones and worked hard to minister to them. (Matt. 20:28)

Beloved ones, if this is how God loved us, then we are also under obligation to love one another.—1 John 4:11.
We cannot properly accept God’s love without recognizing our obligation to love our brothers. (1 John 3:16)
