John 13:35 “Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
On several occasions, I have had the opportunity to socialize with preachers and Christian leaders. I have found it remarkable on occasion the differences in ways they have communicated with others as compared to their spouses and children.
I have observed talk so uplifting and positive to others and then immediately see them shift to critical and hateful to their own wife and children. Not good!
Christ did not say to His disciples that their love to the world would prove they were disciples. Rather He said, your love for each other will make the difference to the world.
Remember, your spouse and your children are the closest neighbors that you have. The world observes with keenness and attention how you interact with them.
Be kind to those who are closest. It proves to the world that you are a disciple.
Have a blessed day.
