Jesus teaches us how to love. Ephesians 5:1-2 MSG "Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that." When we keep company with God, we can learn how to live a life of love. Read His Word and follow the guidance of The Holy Spirit. Talk to Him about everything and anything. Observe, learn, and imitate the ways that Jesus loves us. Without hesitation and with abundance.
