Love IS

How are you doing?
Grateful to be alive and can’t get over this song by anthem lights: Can’t get over you

One of my favourite scripture from the Bible is 1 Corinthians 13 where God defines what true love is…He didn't mince words. He just stated it for us and here it is…
‘Love is patient. 
Love is kind.
It does not envy. It does not boast. 
It is not proud.  
It does not dishonour others. 
It is not self-seeking. 
It is not easily angered and it keeps no record of wrongs. 
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. 
Love never fails.
….And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (The Bible)’
Loving others and ourselves is really one of the best ways to live. Like, they say, ‘if everyone practised true love, then the world will be at peace’…There will be no need for wars anywhere and 'word' battles too. There will be no squabbling’s among families, neighbors and workmates. There will be no divorces as well. There will be no jealousy and the need to harm another being. We would get past hurts, say sorry and cherish the peace of another. Revenge would be a thing of the past. Humility would be our watch word.

If only everyone practised all of these facets of love stated in the Bible, then the world would be a better place. Don’t you think?

Everyone includes you and me, so let’s start today in practising God’s ‘true love’... Let’s start one day at a time…One step at a time…It’s contagious and it can spread...

I'm super excited to start. What of you?

Have a splendid day…

Thanks a billion for reading…
