So these three things continue forever: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinth. 13:13
Persist in an activity or process.
Remain in existence or operation.
I love love and love talking about it. We all need it and I believe we as a people are truly blessed if we’re granted the opportunity to experience in it’s purity at some point in our lives. It is the greatest and there’s no takebacks on the real deal.
One of the greatest things about love is that it is victorious and remains awesome even when us people are defeated and lowly. It never gives up or fails on us, we do. And, for whatever selfish reason we choose to stop cooperating with it, it still wins the championship belt. Ha, we’re not so big and bad afterall. Oh, but, it will certainly allow us to believe that we are. We always have a choice to do so and we’re always making them with our actions.
Love is very much a verb and requires action. In fact, it requires constant action. Yes,
Love must be a conscious act of continuity.
Sometimes the most difficult and consequently the best decisions in life are made from a place of love (believe me, I know). Shoot, My Abba Father makes them all the time. Decisions that hurt us, anger us, cause us to deny, ignore, retaliate, hide and change our demeanor…but Love’s demeanor doesn’t change when ours does.
So, if you’re gonna do it (love, that is), I pray you do it right. If you’ve tried to love right but failed, know that really, you didn’t if you tried your hardest — and I hope you get a second chance. If you don’t know how to love (that’s okay), but you must accept that you will never be able to until you’ve been a receptor of it. If you’ve never been a receptor of it, I pray that one day, in God’s timing you will be (Yay!). And when that day arrives, I pray that you will be a good student of love and be a good steward of love because that one word is so great.
Faith. Hope. Love.
…the greatest of these is love. God is love.
