II John 6 ” And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.”

To walk in love means that the love of God has become so ingrained in you that it has become part of your personality.  I come from a long line of stoic German farmers who are not huggers, so when I became a Nurse,  I had to train myself to touch people…sometimes in very intimate ways, in potentially embarrassing procedures.  And over the years, showing compassion and God’s love through touch just became part of me.  We all need to determine to walk in love.  To respect rather than disregard…to forgive rather than condemn…to show mercy rather than harshness…to be kind rather than cruel.
