How is your love scale doing?
The Bible tells us that “God so loved the world that He gave His only son.” (John 3:16). Paul also tells us in 1 Corinthians 13, the Love chapter, that love will remain long after other human emotions. I can readily accept that statement since God Himself has shown us what true love is all about. How about it? How is your love scale doing? On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rank yourself? Now, be honest! Most of us would not get much beyond a 5, more than likely. When we read Paul’s chapter on love and compare his words to our reality, we don’t do so well. I would like to challenge you to discipline yourself to practice love more often. I’m not talking about that emotion that triggers those nice feelings. I’m talking about the love that truly accepts God’s children for who they are; that truly accepts sinners as lost human beings that need to know about His love, and that truly understands that the only love of God that many people are going to experience will come through our relationship with them. That’s scary! As we portray the love of God to others, they in turn, will come to know the giver of Love and will experience for themselves what His love is all about. They then, will be able to show His love to others, and the cycle continues. Start your cycle today, the cycle of love.
