Beloved, Let Us Love

"Beloved, let us love one another:
for love is of God;
and everyone that loveth is born of God,
and knoweth God." 1 John 4:7

Beloved, let us love. Is this word so hidden in our heart that it is impossible for us to sin against our God
whose name is Love?

It should be quite impossible even to think an unkind thought about another. To misjudge, or to put the worst interpretation on what someone has said or done, should be utterly impossible. If this great word, Beloved, let us love, is hidden in our heart it will prevent unkindness of any sort from slipping in.
Sometimes, of course, we have to speak of wrong things, but if we can speak of wrong in another without pain -- that is unlove.
