Laughter, Licorice, Lemons, Language, and Love
The English language leaves us with one word for love, while other languages have more than one word. I love pumpkin pie but not in the same way I love my husband. Love for another person is not always the easiest thing to do. As a Christian, it gets even harder when we are commanded to love our enemies. Have you tried to show love to someone that you can’t stand or has hurt you in some way? It is the hardest thing to do. Stop and think about it though. We in our sinful nature have done things that God couldn’t stand or hurt Him with our sin. Yet, He loves us so much that He sent His Son to die on the cross to pay for our sins. Now we can experience His love and forgiveness. Show love to those around you that you might not like that much. See what happens to you and them.
