Living love

rom12.9

“Love” is one word that gets tossed around rather flippantly. We toss out “I love your new sweater,” or “I love this weather.” We don’t think much about it. But the real meaning of love isn’t flippant at all. True love means sacrifice for someone else. It means being tolerant, patient, or understanding even when we’re being tried to our limits. It includes forgiveness. Jesus demonstrated the meaning of true love when He gave Himself for humanity. Even though I can never give as much as Jesus gave, it’s my responsibility to try to love as unselfishly and sincerely as Jesus loved.
