1. There’s always time
To offer love,
And treat each person
2. There’s always time
To respond with kindness,
3. There’s always time
And put the other person
4. There’s always time
To see in them
Our Saviour, Christ,
Who cried, “I thirst!”
1. Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them (Romans 12:9; NLT. My emphasis).
Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me (Matthew 25:40; NIV).
You will be treated as you treat others (Matthew 7:2; NLT).
2. The wise listen to others (Romans 12:15; NLT).
Be kind to everyone (2 Timothy 2:24; NLT).
Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me (Matthew 18:5; NLT).
Love your neighbour as yourself (Mark 12:31; NLT).
Love the stranger (Deuteronomy 10:19; NKJV).
Show love to foreigners (Deuteronomy 10:19; NLT).
Love your enemies! (Matthew 5:44; NLT).
He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others (2 Corinthians 1:4; NLT).
3. Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else (Mark 9:35; NLT).
4. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us (Colossians 3:11; NLT).
Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfil the scripture), “I thirst” (John 19:28; RSV).
