With February 14 just around the corner and Fifty Shades of Grey coming out (ugh), my attention has been drawn to the idea of “love”. Society today has warped the idea of “true” love into something so jaded, so disgusting, so pitiful, that it makes me angry. What society calls love, is mainly lust.
God made humans, and he made love. He made us to love each other. More importantly, we were made to love Him. THAT, is true love.
1 John 4:7-9 (NIV) says this:
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.”
As I go into the coming weeks, I’m trying to set my mind on loving people, not the idea of love.
