Jesus gave His disciples an important commandment: “Love one another, as I have loved you” (John 15:12). As followers of Christ, we should live peacefully with others. That includes people who don’t believe the same things we do.

Here are some ways we can love others as the Savior loves us:

  • Be kind to people who are different.

  • Show respect for their beliefs.

  • Never bully or insult anyone.

  • Be a good listener.

  • Be polite. Don’t argue angrily.

  • Stand up for what is true.

  • Tell others about the gospel in a humble way. “[Speak] the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15).

Our Savior’s commandment to love one another as He loves us is probably our greatest challenge. I pray that we can try to show love in all we do.
