"Love is a Habit"
“If you love those who love you, what good is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ love those who love them.”Luke 6: 32 NIV
If you love like a light switch, on and off again, you do not love as God wants you to love. It’s normally easy to love those whom you know. It’s when you start loving the people you think are unlovable that yuo truly understand what love is.
Becoming a master lover means you learn to love the unlovable. Those are the people who irritate you, stab you in the back, gossip about you behind your back and otherwise cause you pain.
Now I don’t want to fool you, this isn’t an easy task but with God’s help you’ll be able to do it. When you realize how much God loves you, then His love will change your entire focus on life. If you don’t accept God’s love you’ll have a hard time loving other people.
Love is not just something to do.When you love like God it becomes the lifestyle you live. But it all starts with a decision. Are you ready to make it?
Your life is worth far more than you think and by learning to love others with the love God gives you will have an influence far greater than you could ever imagine.
If you will commit to this you will experience love as God means it to be, fulfilled hope, energy and joy.
“My prayer for you is that your love will grow more and more; that you’ll have knowledge and understanding with your love.” Philippians 1: 9 NCV.
Peace in the Lord,
