LOVE HAS BENEFITS One of the human calling on earth is a call to love. Imagine a world with so much love. Every time you show kindness and respect; you help someone in need; every time you come to church; serve and give, you are displaying love, and inspiring others to do the same. When there is love it makes the world a beautiful place to live in. This is what God intended when he created earth on the foundation of love. Love is a beautiful thing, you should love your life every minute of it. The life you live will soon pass, but the things you do for love will last. We have to realise that our lives could be gone in a moment. Learn to live each day to the fullest by showing love to those around you. Don’t focus on what is wrong, be grateful for the opportunity to experience each day as it comes. Don’t live another day without giving and showing love. A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. John 13:34. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails… 1Corinthians 13:4-8a In life, Love is what matters most. God wants us to love everyone we come across, that people may know we are truly children of God. Love should be your top priority, primary objective, and greatest ambition. Make it your goal to be a loving person because life without love is absolutely worthless. Unconditional Love is the key. Love must be based on a decision and not a reaction. Love can be displayed in your daily activities by showing simple acts of kindness you can make the world a better place. When you become a follower of Christ, your life becomes different. Everything about you becomes different. When we follow God’s commands, it means we do things differently from others. It means, instead of being offended, we choose love. Instead of insisting on our way, we serve others. It means, instead of trying to be right all the time, we build and lift others up. This isn’t the way most people in the world act but that’s okay. We are called to be different. We are called to rise higher. We are called to be examples of God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness. It may not make sense to others but that’s okay. Don’t live a life of mediocrity, live a life of excellence for God. Life a life pleasing to Him and don’t be afraid to be different. Father, thank You for transforming me into your image. Help me to love like you and be a light everywhere I go. In Jesus’ Name. Amen! In all you do remember to Love because Love has benefits.
