Show others more love

This morning I was talking with God as I was taking my short morning run. I found myself asking Him to show me how I can love Him more. I asked Him with all sincerity, “How can I show you more love.” He quickly replied, “Show others more love.” Wow, I was thinking that He might reveal another ugly sin that was in my blind spot which needed to be dealt with (there are those things and He will reveal them to me in His timing). However, on this day He directed my focus to the truth that loving others is, in fact, loving Him. Thank you Lord for reminding me of this essential truth. May I put it into action this day and may my love for others abound more and more.
34"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' 37"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?' 40"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.' – Matthew 25:34-40
