Love Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

Love like you are made to love

We become bondservants out of love.

Love is not for the faint of heart. Love takes guts and determination. Why? Because we need to love people we don’t even like. We need to love our enemies — you know, the ones who hate us back.

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. (1 Cor 13:4-7)

Love does not take offense. That means that you can’t get your feelings hurt, no matter what happens. Forgive, and let it go. That doesn’t mean that you have to agree with everyone, but you are not allowed to hold a grudge or have a bad attitude. You are called to represent Jesus, and Jesus loves everyone.

Check your heart. If you are holding onto bad attitudes toward anyone, repent and give it to God. Ask Him to fill you with His love so you have love to give out. See the best in people. Love them. Bless them. Let God change your heart to be all that you are called to be. You are loved greatly by God, now give it away.
