“This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.” John 15:12

“You look for My love to be shown by those around you, and you’re disappointed when they don’t give you what you’re looking for. Remember, My daughter, that they can’t give you what they don’t have. They must be filled first with My love before they can give it away. So pray for them, that they will receive My love. Pray that they will let Me love them and be good to them. Instead of being sad and disappointed, pray for your loved ones. They need to be loved on by Me. Then, and only then, can they give it away to you or anyone else.”

Prayer: Father, thank You for helping me understand. I get it now. We can’t give what we don’t have. Fill my loved ones with your love. Pour it on them and help them to receive it. Satisfy their deepest needs, and use them to share that love with everyone around them. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
