THE TONE OF LOVE ❤️

(We shall continue our exposition on Psalm 23 next week Wednesday)

 

1 JOHN 4:11

“Since God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.”

 

The purpose of our time on earth is not primarily about acquiring possessions, attaining status, achieving success, or even experiencing happiness.

Those are secondary issues. Life is all about love and developing relationships – with God and with other people.

 

You may succeed in many areas, but if you fail to learn how to love God and love others, you’ll have missed the reason God created you and placed you on this earth ????

 

Learning to love is life’s most important lesson. Jesus called it the greatest commandment, ”

 

God is love, and God wants you to become more like him. God loves you deeply and unconditionally, Now he wants you to learn to love him back and to love others, especially believers in God’s family.

 

Here’s the problem: Love is unnatural for us. It is human nature to think of ourselves first. We naturally do what is in our own best interest, often without any regard for how it affects others.

 

Hopefully, as we grow, we become more giving and less selfish; but we’ve all known people who never grew up and never considered anything but their own wishes, desires, and cravings.

 

Self-centeredness is the root of practically every problem – both personally and globally.

 

Real love is placing the needs of others before your own. It is making your problem, my problem. It is giving to another without any guarantee of getting anything back. It is giving others what they need, not what they deserve.

 

Although love can create intense feelings, love is not a feeling. It is a choice.

 

Love is sacrificing for others.

The world has no clue as to what real love is all about.

 

The tone of love by many is “I really need you, I want you, I must have you at all cost.” If they don’t get something, they don’t do something.

 

Real love focuses on how i can serve you, not how you can serve me, It’s the opposite of our selfish tendencies.

 

Real love takes knowledge, God’s grace, and practice. Love is of God.
