No Greater Love

John 15:12-13 “This is My command: love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends.”

A true story from Idaho:
A vacuum cleaner salesman knocks on a door.
He is denied a sale because the homeowner can’t afford it.
He inquires why.
He learns the man of the house has kidney failure and is undergoing costly medical procedures.
He also learns that there is little hope of a transplant due to the 500-person-long waiting list.
The vacuum cleaner salesman is shocked to find that he is a donor match.
He decides to donate his kidney.
The recipient calls it for what it is…a miracle.

Proverbs 27:1 “Don’t boast about tomorrow, for you don’t know what a day might bring.”

    What a great and pithy story. It seems as if the greatest obstacle for non-Christians to see Christ is the way Christians often don’t love one another.
