Family Friday: Love like Jesus

Teaching our children to love like Jesus

 Love gives the benefit of the doubt according to I Cor. 13. Love is ever ready to believe the best of someone. We should work on teaching our children to believe the best motives in others rather than the worst.
 Love treats others the way you WANT to be treated (Matt. 7:12) not the way you believe they just treated you.
Love empathizes. To some empathy comes more naturally than others, but we should strive to teach our children to put themselves in someone else’s shoes.
Love speaks it’s own language. Help your children to understand that each person understands and receives love differently. Teach your children to learn their loved ones love language. What speaks to them?
