Blog 417: I Love you

Circus I love you - Home | Facebook

We all have people around us that we love, we have our family, our spouse, our children, our friends, our church family. We love them all but in different ways, we love our spouse more than our children but our children more than our friends. It doesn’t matter who we are with or who we like we will have an undercurrent of love for everyone out there. I have noticed when something happens then there is a rush of people to help, when the country is thrown into turmoil we group together and we unit to make things better and this is because of an undercurrent of love we have for our follow man. You may not have seen or met someone before but if they have been injured then we are ready to jump in and to help them.

Do you know why this happens? We want the best for other people and we want to be able to love other people because they are them. There is no one in the world that is like you or me, there is no one who has gone through what you have been through, there is no one who has done what you have done and there is no one who is you. We are all different, we are all unique and because of this we should show love to other people. We don’t know what other people have had to go through to be able to get to where they are today and we have to appreciate them and their effort and love them rather than putting them down. Instead of judging other people for who they are we need to start to love them, we need to start to know them before we jump to a judgement.

This last week it may have been messy, you may have had a hard week, you may have had troubles, you may have been let down, you may have let down other people but through it all there have been and there will be people that love you for just being you, people who accept you for being you and we need to show that love onto other people. I don’t care what you have been through this week, I don’t care whether you are down, whether you have had an easy or hard week I am sending love your way. I am sending help, love and encouragement from myself to you! We all have times in our life when things are harder than the other and we will learn to be able to cope with them, we will learn to deal with them but we also need to reach out too. We need to be able to reach out to those people who we haven’t heard from in a while, we need to reach out to those people who don’t normally reach out and we need to keep on showing care and love to those people around us.

There are many people and things in our life that we will love or that we will learn to love, sometimes showing love to others is easier than other times but at some point in our life we will learn to love those people around us. We all are born to love and we actually learn to hate and we should not even think about this and if we learn to hate then we should learn more to love. As we grow and have children of our own we need to love, we need to show love to those people that wouldn’t get love from other people, we need to show love to those people who need it and we need to show love to those people who are unable to show it back. Why do we show love and why should we show love?

There is one very easy answer to this: We need to show love because we are commanded to. We are commanded in the Bible to show love to our neighbour, to show love to the widow, to show love to the children, to love other people as we love ourselves. It is very simple really, as you want to be treated and loved you need to show that to the people around you. You need to show that you can love even when times are hard. We were loved by God before the world was even created and you know something even more amazing, God showed us the greatest love because He sent His son to die for us.
