What is love? The majority of us don’t truly know what love is. We say; “I love you” out of habit. But do we truly know what love truly is? And do we truly love?
By no means, am I an expert in love, but in God’s word, I have come to know the true meaning of love through his demonstration of “sacrificing” His Son, dying for us.
Sacrifice is the true meaning of love! Those things that we truly do not want to give up, are the very things that hold us back from reaching our true potential, and from receiving God’s goodness. The love He has given to others, for them to give to us.
God loves us in spite of all the wrong we do. His love for us is unconditional. Unlike us, we love with conditions. Most of all, we love when things are going just fine. When things are not going our way, love is not even in the equation. We’re quick to be judgmental and unforgiving, when it should be the opposite. Quick not to judge and quick to be forgiving. We even look for the other person to change first. It’s not on them, it’s on us.
No, we are not God, but we should be “like” Him.
I challenge you, starting this moment, and I accept the challenge myself, not to be quick to judge others, forgive others so that you may be forgiven, and make sacrifices to demonstrate your love.
