Imagine a family is gathering around the bedside of their beloved father before he passes, not wanting to miss any of his last words. They love him and they are there to support one another in their grief. In his wisdom, knowing what could soon transpire with the settling of the estate, the father says, “I raised you in the love of God and everyone around knows it. Now, prove you are my kids by loving each other. This is not a request. I command it!” Do others know we are God’s kids by the love we show each other? Let us pray so.
