"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." -John 13:34 

Jesus' last commandment is our first priority. By loving our neighbors and our enemies- no matter how hard it may be- we lead people to Jesus. Ladies, God divinely wired us to lead and to love, and the best way that we can lead is to lead out of the place of love that has been planted inside of each of us. This commandment can be the hardest simply because of the ways people have been known to treat us at times, but it's so important to live with the understanding that you are not called to retaliate. 

Rather, you are called to rise above. And you rise above by showing love. Your Maker made you a leader who holds the power of the resurrection story within- not the power of retaliation. Without love, we are nothing. Place your desire to love people fully in God and He will place His voice in you.
