We are called to love others well—not just in an average way, but with excellence. We are called to reach out to others, meeting them at their point of need. We must set aside our own agendas, considering the welfare of those God has placed in our lives. Consider what Scripture tells us about the importance of loving others: “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God and everyone who loves is born of God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love” (I John 4:7-8).
