‘Love is patient, love is kind’ (1 Cor. 13:4 Passion Bible)
All you need is love
I was in Costa the other day. I do like a good Latte and chat with a friend. On the wall of my local Costa I read these words, ‘A coffee bean needs five years of love’. I thought to myself, “How much love do we as people need, to love and be loved?”
The most streamed songs on Spotify so far in 2018 all speak of love. The conviction that we are loved is the greatest happiness to be found in life. We were all created to be loved. How many times have we heard the phrase, “All you need is love”.
God loves everyone absolutely perfectly. It doesn’t matter what we’ve done or where we’ve been or even what we’ve thought. God whispers, “I love you!”
Once we know we are loved by God Himself, it’s time to love those around us. Love them patiently, kindly, protectively, trustingly, perseveringly.
Love never fails, love always wins.
