Tuesday after Epiphany

It is often easy to say that we love another person, but how many of us truly mean what we say? Some of us say we love a person, but what we really mean is we merely like the person. Some say that we love a person, but we have reasons, terms and conditions attached to our so called love. How many of us are able to love truly, completely, selflessly, happily and constantly without condition; without any strings attached?

In today's reading, we are reminded to "love one another since love comes from God and everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God." The reading also shows us how great and selfless God's love is where He "sent into the world his only Son to be the sacrifice that takes our sins away, so that we could have life through him." Would we be willing and able to love others thoroughly, even those who are challenging or difficult to love, just like the way God loves us all?
