Fifth Sunday of Easter Devotion

Christ in Our Home
Fifth Sunday of Easter
John 13:31-35
Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.  (v. 34)
Cho placed her hand on her mother’s casket while a tear slid down her cheek.  Her mother had been a good mother, not perfect, but good.  From her mother’s example, Cho had learned about love.  Her mother had been a constant presence in Cho’s life.  She had been supportive in the low points of Cho’s life, had corrected Cho when needed, and had counseled her when asked–always with an attitude of unfailing live.  Cho’s mother’s work with undocumented immigrants had demonstrated to Cho how to show love to others by accepting them and treating them with respect.
  Cho was determined to follow her mother’s example.  As a mother herself, Cho wanted to teach her children to be loving people.  She made an intentional effort to show love toward her friends, neighbors, and coworkers, and she volunteered at a shelter for battered spouses.
  We are all recipients of God’s steadfast love.  Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, we have observed what love is.  We are charged now to share the love we have received with others.
God of love, inspire us to be people of love, through Christ Jesus our Lord.  Amen.
  Prayer concern:  Foster children and parents
