And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1st Corinthians 13:13 (NKJV).
Outside of the Love of God, for many, but not all is the love from parents. This love is so vital to our growth and development because when one experiences good parenting, it helps in so many areas of one’s life. There is a level of confidence that you have that no matter what comes your way, you do not have to seek love in all the wrong places. You also have an excellent example of what true love looks like versus what it is not, especially when it comes to relationships and choosing a mate. One thing I was always grateful for was the ability to communicate when charting unfamiliar territory because not everyone is raised the same or has the same morals, values, structure and discipline. When you have not had the opportunity to experience genuine love from someone we call family. God specializes in love and calls it the greatest gift. There is no greater love than the love of God. The only way to experience this love is to develop a relationship with the Lord. One of my favorite gospel songs is he’s sweet I know Dark clouds may rise, and strong winds may blow But, I can tell the world wherever I may go That I have found a Savior and He’s sweet I know. Many of us who love the Lord know just what we are singing about because we have experienced this love. Some people will never comprehend this love because they do not have that level of faith. Love must be tangible for some people, that’s unfortunate because Gods love never fails, but man’s love does. God’s love is infinite, man or woman’s love has limitations, a man or woman’s love might even depend on the day of the week or come with guidelines or a price. People get tired of you, God’s love never tires, Gods love is always available does not matter if we lose or gain weight, hair falls out if we do not always do or say everything right. God’s love is forgiving and long-suffering, Gods love is not manipulative, we have the greatest examples of love because we were yet sinners Christ died for us so we would not die in our sins. God still loves us even if we do not deserve his love; so, this Valentine, if no one expresses love to you, God expressed his love to us in the bible, and Gods love is eternal with no expiration date. God Bless.
