☆☆When the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable☆☆
Today, we’d be looking at the abuse of Love (and by Love, I mean God. He’s all shades of love. There’s no love outside of Him).
I sometimes hear people say God love xyz more than He loves me. But is that really true?The LOVE of God is available to every man (cause while we were yet deep in sin, He died for us without any assurance from us that we’d love him in return) and unless a person is aware of that love, or its purpose, it’s gonna be abused.
Take for instance, a person in debt of about 5,000 to whom a kind-hearted person has transferred 20,000 to but is unaware of that transefer. Such a person would keep looking for ways to settle the debt.
That’s how God’s love is to us. It’s available to every man, but only those who are aware of it and how to assess it bask in its goodies.
Another example is that if Mother who has an insecticide treated net and instead of setting it up for her family to sleep in, she uses it to protect her crops while her children keep coming down with malaria.
A lot of people go into relationships trying to feel loved and share the love they feel they have. See, God’s love is much more than the human mind can phantom.
He says:Though the mountains move and the hills shake, my love will not be removed from you and my covenant of peace will not be shaken,” says your compassionate Lord .
Isaiah 54:10 CSB
However, with human love; If you don’t have a map (which is God), if you don’t have an instrument, you’re adrift at sea,” says Tim Muehlhoff, a Biola communications professor.
“I think, today, our culture is adrift at sea. So we say, ‘Okay, we need to tighten up our concept of love.’ Where do you turn to tighten it?’’
Waking up every day and loving someone who may or may not love us back, whose safety we can’t ensure,who may stay in our lives or may leave without a moment’s notice,who may be loyal to the day they die or betray us tomorrow –that’s vulnerability,” says Brene Brown, a professor at the University of Houston Graduate School for Social Work, in her book “Daring Greatly.”Vulnerability at its core is “uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure.”
Love is a settled disposition that considers another’s welfare more special than its own and that’s exactly what God demonstrated billions of millions of thousands ago hehe and is still demonstrating today.
His love is available for you today. Just key into it by simply believing in faith that you are loved by Him and there’s be peace to every storm, a sense of completion to every void and joy to every brokenness.
For without God….it’s impossible to love….. also Remember that He has feelings and loves attention too. Don’t abuse His love and hurt His feelings.
