John 13:34 says, “As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” Despite his familiarity with the verse, Gavin realized he hadn’t been loving like Jesus at all. In fact, Gavin’s version of John 13:34 included some “rewrites”:
• Love one another when he/she deserves to be loved.
• Love one another the way you want to be loved.
• Love one another so that he/she will love you in return.
