I hear people say, “Love is not enough, you need more than love to pull through it all”… Hmm… I believe, strongly believe that LOVE in its entirety is enough! Love is a feeling and a decision… You feel it at first, butterflies in your tummy, a certain attraction and then what happens? The continuity or the ability to remain in love is a decision we have to make. This is what now brings in commitment, sacrifice, and every other thing.
Even though sometimes the human nature seems to revolt against this. We are made to love, however situations around turned our hearts from loving…. For God so loved, that HE gave; For CHRIST so loved, that HE came & gave… I’ve been told and I’ve seen through God’s demonstration of love that “Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant. It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured. It does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail]. Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening]. Love never fails [it never fades nor ends]…” 1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-8 AMP
So you may say why do people cheat, lie, do evil things and yet they say they love. They actually don’t #love because if they really do they won’t do all that. I also understand that not everybody knows how to love because they’ve not experienced love. You really cannot give what you don’t have.
God is love and has always loved us. May we all experience true love so strong! Amen!
