Today Reminder – 20 February 2014 (Day 14 – Love is…)

A reminder for today
For the word of the LORD holds true, and we can trust everything he does. (Psalm 33:4)

Love is imperfect…  Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture!

I guess you will differ from me when I say love is imperfect. You might argue that love is God and God is perfect. Well I want you to look at love as we display it and as we observe it. Love seems imperfect then, doesn’t it? Love seems almost broken and lost. Love seems incomplete.

When you look at how easily love can get angry and how little time we have for each other. Jip, love surely seems imperfect then. But why? It is because we look at love through our worldly eyes and we try and love with our worldly nature. We try and justify love by ignoring our own inadequacies and we try and restore love with gifts. 

We made love cheap by accepting a mediocre version of it. Yes love as we know it is only partial and incomplete and we only see part of the whole picture. What can we do to change our concept of love and how can we uplift our own weaknesses?

The answer is in Jesus. We need to have more of Him in our lives. We need more time with Him and we need to bring Him more clearly into our homes. We need to walk in His footsteps and we need to read and speak His word more often.

Love is perfect once it is lived through and with Jesus as the centre of your very existence. Then only will love survive everything that is created to destroy love. God designed love to be perfect and unbreakable.

Seek no less of love, but for it to be perfect and that perfection lies in your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
