Show up for Others

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24)
No one on the face of this earth has it all together in this aspect of loving. Do you know why? Because we tend to be very self-focused, self-centered, and self-absorbed. Most of the time, we are concerned about how other people are viewing us. We are wondering what other people think of us. That is not love. That’s a self-focused, self-centered life. If we want to learn to love, we need to look at the example Jesus set for us.

If you want to love like Jesus, you have to be there for the people you love. Simply be there for them. God wants us to learn how to love by simply being present for the people we care about. That's exactly what Jesus did while He was on earth. He was present for His disciples every step of the way. He not only was there for them physically, but He was present for them emotionally, spiritually, and financially. From the time He called them as His disciples, until His crucifixion, He was there for them. Even after His resurrection, the first place He wanted to be was with them.

Accordingly, we need to ask ourselves these questions: “Do I show up for other people? Am I there for the people I care about? Or am I only around when it’s easy and convenient for me?” If we take the time to honestly answer these questions, we can take one step forward in learning to love more like Jesus loved.
