Love is never wasted. We are transformed by who and what we love. We are becoming like the object of our worship.
Be imitators of God as dearly loved children.
Love one another as I have loved you.
Build each other up. Encourage one another daily.
Don’t just look out for your own interests, look out for the interests of others.
Do nothing out of selfish motives or vain conceit.
Love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength; love your neighbor as you love yourself. This is the greatest commandment.
The words above are from the Bible. Many are from Jesus. I’d love to tell you that I always think love is a good idea. I don’t. Sometimes the logical response for me is to choose isolation from people and forgo loving anyone but God. As an introvert, loving people is sometimes exhausting. Sometimes, honestly, love feels like a waste of time. Just keeping it real…yet part of loving God is loving people, not just in word but through actions.
