Without love we are nothing? With love we are everything!
Why? and What has that got to do with God?
Firstly what difference does love make in our world?
Love brings down barriers, love ends wars and battles, love is kindness. When there is love there is no discrimination, no judgements or condemnation. Love does not look at genders, or age, or colour of skin, nor does it look at your belief denomination. Boy, girl, transgender; from birth to death; from pale skin to dark; from Native Indians, Hinduism, Taoism, Aborigines, Buddhist, Muslim, Catholic or all the Christian denominations, love does not recognise any differences.
We are all children of God, we all had a Creator, a designer. Our world and bodies and the way everything weaves together could not have been an accidental coincidence in a simple big bang. God orchestrated the big bang. He had purpose and a plan.
With love we help one another, we are patient with each other. Love is happy with what we have and love celebrates what other people have. Love spreads joy, peace and hope.
Love dissolves anger, envy, pride and arrogance. Love fades out criticisms, irritation and frustration. Love doesn’t look after number one, but looks out for everyone else. In shared love, that means we all look out for each other. During the Olympic games everyone supported and looked after abled and disabled athletes, just as one family, volunteers across the country rallied round. and it was a great games for all competitors and spectators alike.
Some people see God as a dictator, someone who wants to spoil their fun, someone who has rules and regulations they can not live up too, but in truth all God calls us to do is love one another and Him. In the golden age of mankind, when God walked on earth with us, everyone was treated equally, valued the same, loved the same. He hasn’t changed, we have. History unfortunately shows that we do not learn from our mistakes. Our hope is in His return and in many ancient texts and in our Bibles around the world that is His promise.
This is the world without love, without God, in Timothy 3 v1-4 it says… But mark this, there will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.
In our world without true love there is discrimination, wars and hatred. Anger and envy; pride and arrogance; dishonour and evil; lies and murder.
The cure to our world is the unconditional love of God.
God loves you.
Be blessed with love today
