Fifth Sunday of Easter

John 13:31-35

Jesus loved forgivingly. In spite of their failing and faults, Jesus loved his friends. A love that cannot forgive will shrivel and die. Love has two sides, we are to love and be loved. We need this balance in our lives as followers of Jesus. And so we need to love selflessly, sacrificially, forgivingly and with understanding. And we need to be open to accept love.
