Love

Jeff makes a very good point here.

It's a complicated thing. I have a hard time loving God because I really don't love myself when you get right down to it. I think this is an area where God has to shake His head and extend more grace for a lot of people, especially Americans.

Add in to that the problem that our idea of love and God's idea of love don't always line up and you have some confusion - the most loving thing, but in whose eyes? You can't throw out the rule-book for what you may just "think" or "feel" love is.

Let me amend that - God's love IS true love, not just an idea. OUR love is the one that can be just an idea.

No one said to throw out the rule book, Jo. But when a conflict arises, there is that tie breaker system in place.

Love wins.

Love is doing what is best for the other person. Even if you think it isn't. Whether that is discipline for a child, or helping and encouraging someone who you think doesn't deserve it.

Does any of us truly deserve God's love?
