Diligo Deum (1 Jn 4:20)


God is the heavenly Father who loves his children. You cannot love him without loving your brothers and sisters. On the earth you meet with people and they are human beings not angels. All of them need love. They are looking for your love. 
You sometimes do not choose properly and think that love is merely emotion. So God gives you commandments and teaches you how to love sincerly. He sent his beloved Son - Jesus Christ. The Son of God lived among people and showed the way how to love them. First of all, Jesus loved his Father in the Holy Spirit. He prayed a lot and spent time with his Father. He always talked with him using words full of love and intimacy. The communion with his Father was crutial in Jesus' life. 
Secondly, he cared for the needy around him, he touched their bodies, cured the sick and encouraged the depressed. He focused on the person and knew how to help one's body and soul. Jesus Christ taught to build good relation between God and man. 
You are to follow Jesus and to love your brothers and sisters. It is the main precept from the Scriptures. Actually, this is not very difficult. You are to start with prayer for your relatives and friends. Moreover, you need to pray for your enemies. In this way you can overcome all the problems which appear in your daily life. By the power of divine love you are able to change the world. As ordinary person you can save your family and community. Since there is nothing stronger than faith and love.
