Here is the thing.
Some people are really really annoying.
With some people I would rather lay concrete for 14 hours a day in the middle of a 120 degree heat wave then spend 10 minutes with them in the most beautiful place on earth.
The more I think about it’s not just some….. its most.
Most people are annoying, frustrating, and slower then I would like.
The even more i think about it, its not just some, or most, its even myself.
I get on my own nerves!!! I get tired of me!
I want a vacation from myself – because I know me and I’m annoying.
And yet, somehow we can love. What?!
1 John 4 says this: And this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us.
Did you catch that?
He loved us!!!
To often we build our relationship around the idea that we love God. While this sounds good on the outside and its sound very spiritual its not.
The outcome is this: Everything in life is built on what we do for Him.
While the Gospel is based on the foundation of what He did for us!
I can love only because he first loved me.
To often we want to experience are love towards God while God wants us to experience His love towards us!
By this we can now love others because we have been loved.
Love is patient.
Love is kind.
Love is long-suffering.
Love never fails.
