Low on Love?
Loving people isn't easy. The vow-breakers, truth-benders. The money-grubbers and backstabbers we meet, work with, and marry. How do we love someone who is hard to love? Our typical strategy is to try harder. Conventional wisdom says that a lack of love implies a lack of effort, so we dig deeper, strain more. We're going to love if it kills us!
And it may do just that.
Could it be we're missing a step? Could it be that the first step of love is not toward them but toward Him? After all, we can't give what we don't have.
A marriage-saving love is not within us. Friendship-preserving devotion cannot be found in our hearts. We need help from an outside source. A transfusion.
Join Max Lucado on an exploration of the forgotten first step for relationships. The secret to loving, he says, is living loved.
God loves us. Personally. Powerfully. Passionately. Others have promised and failed. But God has promised and succeeded. He loves us with an unfailing love. And his love, if we let it, can fill us with a love worth giving.
