Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance.
When one defines love it often gets labeled, “it’s complicated.” However, loving someone takes a conscious decision to make the effort to share something within you that makes a statement to the other person that—you matter.
Imagine how relationships with others would flourish if only we treated each other as—you matter. Every life has value. But, when we lose sight of love, the lens is blurred on how precious life really is. So, let’s imitate God’s love.
God’s love is so consistent that His faithfulness knows no end. His love for you stands when all others fail and says that—you matter. Think about it; God took the time to make a unique you for the sake of touching the lives of others and vice versa.
Beloved—you matter and every life matters. Even though love isn’t always easy—it’s meant to last beyond a lifetime. And, the next time you think of love, don’t label it “it’s complicated” but as “it’s necessary.” Love on purpose!
Be a light!
