||My love is shallow||
Yesterday at lifegroup, someone shared, "...I realized my love was so shallow...". At that moment, it literally felt like something pierced through the heart as if God himself roared at me:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Conrinthians 13:4-7
I always say, how much people mean to me, how much I desire to show love to those underprivileged, neglected, defenseless, yada yada yada.
BUT yet, in my daily life, I can be so impatient with the traffic/at how the person in front is driving so slowly, or frustrated at someone who's always late, or complaining about a person, or hurting my parents, or unintentionally still judging people who behave differently, or still struggling to show grace & mercy to those who have hurt me/hard to love, the list goes on..... How is that love?
I realized how shallow my love can be. If only I can understand in entirety the depth of God's love for me, because even though I'm so hard to love, He still loves me? A love that I will never be able to fathom. Love is not love, if it is easy to love. Love is a choice. I hope I will remember to make that choice everyday.
