12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. …17 These things I command you, so that you will love one another. (John 15:12-14, 17, ESV)

This verse is often quoted during memorial ceremonies where one Soldier sacrifices himself for another. It is an absolute – there truly is no greater picture of love than the willingness to lay down one’s life for another. The greatest picture of this is Jesus’ willingness to die for those who hate God. If He was willing to go that far, we could at least love those He put in our lives.

Prayer: Lord, may my life reflect you through the acts of loving others.
