The Greatest Gift

When I was younger, it was always a mystery to me how two hearts come together, fall in love and shares their love for the rest of their lives. Time goes by and I have discovered and learned the language of love. It’s not just about being in love with the people who makes you happy and loves you back in return. It comes to the extent of loving people who you think are unlovable. Sounds insane right?

1st Corinthian 13:4-7 says; Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

This verse has been engraved in mind and I would say engraved in my heart as well but got to take a rough road to finally get in to it. Dwelling in perfect and true love is really tough without the One who gives it. I humble myself that without Him I am nothing and yes, with Him I can do all things.

Giving up life for a friend is indeed a greatest love, and that’s what Jesus did 2000 years ago. Its indeed the greatest gift a man can ever have. Abide in faith, and learn to love other people with the love of God in our hearts.

…..faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1st Corinthian 13:13

great post, Bev. True enough, God so loved us inspite of all our weaknesses and imperfection...
Amazing love and grace indeed.
As we keep on focusing on Jesus and His love for us, the more this God's love will overflow in us and we'll be able to love and care for others as well...God blessedness!
