Love - An Essential Need


"The power of love is a curious thing...Make one man weep, make another man sing. Change a hawk to a little white dove....More than a feeling, that's the power of love."

Chris Hayes and Huey Lewis

I believe that one of the most essential needs in our lives is to love and be loved. There are so many precious moments in our lives that provide us with opportunities to show love for others. We should never squander any of those moments. Our focus ought to be on the purest form of love, and never allow it to turn into something that it should not be. "Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of sinful nature" (Rom.13:14). The true bond that holds us together is the silken bond of love. Our love for one another manifests itself in a kind of trickle down way, with some extraordinary benefits. Loving each other engenders an admiration for one another. When we love one another there will be certainty of affection also. Love for one another will constrain us to show a powerful and lasting loyalty. Finally, where there is love there is also devotion. It does not take much effort to have ill will toward someone, but it takes and shows great strength to love each other. "More than a feeling....That's the power of love."

Have a wonderful day....Make a difference... Love mark Phil.4:11
