Love Check

The sun lights up the earth, the night sky allows the stars to shine, the ocean repeatedly kisses the shoreline no matter how many times it’s sent away, the air blows and lifts the soaring hawk to new heights, the mother quietly soothes the newborn baby to sleep in a warm embrace, the father tirelessly provides and protects, the earth continues to spin keeping us all grounded.

We carry scars from our past from not only things that have happened but also from the lack of things that where needed. Not being seen, heard or loved properly can sometimes be worse to a person than a horrible car accident or even physical abuse. One of our biggest most natural desire is to be loved. When we’re not loved or if we’re only loved conditionally the message it sends to us is we suck, we’re useless, we’re no good….worthless.

You can’t necessarily make people do anything let alone love you the way you need BUT how are you loving you? If you are properly loving yourself you’ll stop settling for anything other than genuine love, respect and happiness. You’ll stop allowing others to take advantage of you, use and abuse you.

How are you loving others? Are you breaking generational heartaches by showing love to your kids, your spouse, yourself? Or are you continuing the trend?

Corinthians 13:4-8

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres

Do you love only when someone can give you something or do something for you? Do you love only in the good times not the bad? Do you love wholeheartedly or with a agenda in mind? Is your love unconditional or conditional?
