 EVERLASTING LOVE

         595e954c814d9fff82221a2ebf421589

Most of us don’t go into a relationship thinking it’s simply temporary.  We think long term, from here to eternity, everlasting kind of love. The kind of love that never ends, because your love is special.

But every relationship here on earth is often peppered with self absorption, salted with selfishness, and seasoned with negativity and often times problems.  Those relationships are doomed before they even have a chance.

God doesn’t think like us mere mortals.  He’s God, remember.  He knows all about us and He wants us to be happy.  His love will never end, because of those feelings for us.  It isn’t because of our superior behavior, the amount of money we give to the church or charity, the volunteer hours we’re stacking up in order to feel good about ourselves.  It’s because of God’s perfect love – a love we will never be able to replicate.  Our good deeds are nothing but filthy rags to Him.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if other relationships were like that?  If people would open their hearts and hands to those they cherish the most – To put them first –  To be willing to make sacrifices – to forgive, forget, to love perfectly.  It would even be better if we were that way with our friendships, our co-workers, the waitress who serves you, the teller at the bank.  Think of how things would change if we could only love with the unconditional love God offers us every day.

Our world is only getting worse by the day.  We can sit and complain about it or we can do something to make it change.  What the world needs now, is love, sweet love!
