A Glimpse of True Love

May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else 1 Thessalonians 3:12

They sometimes drive us crazy! Yes, really crazy! But on the other hand, they are absolutely the best people God has sent into our lives. If you haven’t guessed it already, I am most definitely talking about family. Spouses, children, parents, brothers, and sisters. They are the people you love the most and hate the most. Fight the most, and make up with the most.

Through our family, God molds us into the people He wants us to be. He wants to teach us patience,

forgiveness,

mercy,

kindness,

sacrifice,

humbleness.

True Love.

Through these special people, God wants to show us a glimpse of His amazing love. Yet, the love of even the closest person doesn’t come close to God’s perfect love. However, He wants us to strive to perfect our love for others by becoming closer to Him. The more we rely on God to supply us with the power to love others (especially our families), the more perfect our love will become. Because honestly, on our own, we are quite the weaklings. At least I am!

So go ahead, ask God for the strength to love. He can’t deny us that request! Can He?
