Lent 2017 – Day Nineteen
An unbeliever get to know what the love of God is all about when a follower of Jesus Christ exhibits that love through doing good to everyone. The verse does not say we should do good to only members of our family or our friends or members of our church but to every single person. You see, when God showed us how much He loved the world, He did not limit His love to only His chosen people – the Jews – but then His love was made available for everyone. The verse also points out when we ought to do good to everyone. It states that whenever we have the opportunity we should do good. This means that we must do good at every given opportunity and not when we feel like it.
