This is a post I started last year while at Maggie’s Place…I decided to post it now just because…
How did we get to the place where we simply “love” everything? You know what I mean, “Oh I just love your earrings.” “Didn’t you love that cheesecake?” “I really love _____.” You fill in the blank; we “loooove” everything.
The bible says a lot about what love is…
1 Corinthians 13:4-8New Living Translation (NLT)
4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
Jesus said this…
Mark 12:30-31New King James Version (NKJV)
30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
My son, Cody will be 27 on the 17th of October. He is a gift from God and I am so thankful to God for the privilege of being his mom. He probably doesn’t even realize this but his love kept me going in some really hard times. It was because of my love for him that I cried out to God to asking Him to reveal Himself to me when I wanted to die.
2 John 1:6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.
