Love your neighbor

Mother Teresa once said, "If you judge people, you have no time to love them." In honor of valentine's day, i challenge you to love someone tomorrow simply because God loves them. 

Maybe the person you need to love most or even the person who needs your love the most is someone you dislike or can only stand for a few minutes. However it may be your love that person needs most. love them for who God created them to be. Love them because we were called to love one another as Christ loved us. love them and see the joy that comes from following one of the greatest commands God ever gave us. Not convinced here's the scripture to back this up...
John 13:34-35
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Romans 12:10
"Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves."
Romans 12:16
"Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited."
Romans 15:7
"Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God."
Ephesians 4:32 
"Be kind and compassionate to one anther forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you."
Ephesians 5:19 
" Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in you heart."
1 Thessalonians 5:11 
"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."
1 John 4:12 
"No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us."
