Love and Be Loved

“Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled head, Doesn’t force itself on others,Isn’t always “me first,” Doesn’t fly off the handle, Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, Doesn’t revel when others grovel,Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, Puts up with anything,Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.
This love amazes me. His word amazes me. Yet, somehow, I am amazing to Him. This is how He loves me! If you think about God – He requires nothing from us, but hearts surrendered. He doesn’t put conditions on us, doesn’t force us to do right, but just the opposite. He loves us – and in turn we love Him. It’s just so natural – Love and Be Loved. Then His very love is shed abroad in our hearts, and we can give t out to others; His VERY love. It’s no something we have to figure out how to do or strive to do, we just love as God loves us. He gives it to us, and we give it to others. Simple. Let’s not complicate it by trying to ‘find’ ways to love, or by ‘wondering’ how to love. He has shown us already, and it has been revealed to us by His Holy Spirit. There’s nothing new under the sun with God, no new formulas, no special exceptions to the rule, no shortcuts, just His way. Choose God – Choose Love.
