I want to love.
I want to love like Jesus. But, the more than I studied love and the action of love put in motion…the more I realized I needed a deeper revelation of love in it’s TRUE form, God.
See, God’s love is heavenly. Jesus is truly the perfect representation of love. Here on earth, love has expecatations. Unhealthy ones at that. Here on earth we tend to hold people to a standard that they don’t even know we have and then grow disappointed when they do not reach it. But, that is not love at all. Love does not have expectations of what it can get. Love gives without an expectation of a return.
When we had nothing to give, Jesus gave us everything. That is love. Rather than holding people to a certain expectation and loving people based on their actions…we need to love like Jesus. We should freely give love to others, because Jesus has freely given it to us. When we had nothing, he gave it all for both you and me.
I am not sure where you are at. But take the time to reflect on your relationships. Are you loving to recieve or are you loving freely?
Love gives & love gives some more.
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
I Corinthians 13:4-7 NKJV
