Nothing has taught me more about love than when I really started studying the scriptures of the Bible.
I’ve always known about how much God loves us, but the more I learned about how many times He’s forgiven us from generation to generation and how He sent His son to wipe away our sins, the more I realize the meaning of true love.
He loves us enough to give us life, He assures that all our needs are met, He teaches us, guides us, protects us, surrounds us with people who love us, He’s always there for us, knows us all by name, some days He’ll rain blessings down on us or He enables us to be blessing for others.
What’s most amazing is that He’s been loving us for thousands of years and He never gets tired or grows impatient with us. His hope for us is eternal and everlasting.
I’m not sure that any of us have God’s capacity for love, but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t practice His level of love even on strangers and your enemies. When you find yourself holding and sharing kind, true and ednuring love with someone, then you will know what love is.
