My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love. This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God. My dear, dear friends, if God loved us like this, we certainly ought to love each other. No one has seen God, ever. But if we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and his love becomes complete in us—perfect love! (1 John‬ ‭4:7) When I review all this recent talk about ‘how’ and ‘what’ love is, I look to how Papà God has been throughout my life – and how I therefore should love others: Gracious – to the the extreme

Kind – beyond boundaries

Forgiving – cleaning my mind and heart

Giving Hope – refreshing my hope when all seemed lost

Forgiveness – giving me Peace when I was behaving like a spoilt brat Mercy – showing me mercy, even when i wasn’t able to …

Etc etc The love that is ours … 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. (1 Cor 13:3). X
