The fact that we have the ability to love one another is simply magnificent. "We love because He first loved us." I read this in a completely different way tonight. Yes it's a charge to us to love one another, but I felt tonight a different heart behind this specific verse. We GET to love because He loves us. Because God loved, because God is love, because God is one with you and I, we GET to love. We get to be love, show love, share love, experience love, soak in love, and receive love. Love is a gift. Love is a treasure. Love is everything. So here is my encouragement to you...simply enjoy love. From your family, your kids, your friends, your pets, your spouse, and from your Father. Enjoy love and give love as much as you possibly can.
