It takes trust to love.
We sat in my living room, four grown women. Each with our own story. All desiring to glorify God with this life. Each longing to love well.
She asked, “What do you think the world’s definition of love is?”
We had varying answers from infatuation to romance to receiving.
We read from 1 John. And there, in black and white we are told what love is.
God is Love.
If God is Love, then Love is sacrificial, it doesn’t require reciprocation, it gives and gives and gives, it does not assume it will receive it back. Love dies for others.
In our humanity this is impossible. How can we possibly Love this way?
If we trust in Him, He who IS Love, we can know that when our love is given in the way that God designed it to be given, nothing will be lost. No matter if it is returned or not.
