A Word from Wendell

Ah…. love!? February is the month of love because we celebrate Valentine’s Day. But, do
we understand what love is? We use it in many different ways, e.g., we say: I love pizza, I
love my car, l love it when you…, when what we mean is, we really like something.
Sometimes we say we love someone also, when we really just like them. But what is
love?
When I met my wife, I liked her. Then I grew very fond of her and then I fell in love with
her. I wanted to spend my life with her, and we have now for many years. It is a love that
stays the course, no matter what. It is a love that says we will always be together. This
love sounds like the love God has for us.
“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would
only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I
understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith
that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.
If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if
I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no
record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” I
Corinthians 13:1-7, NLT.
So, let’s take God’s love and enjoy it and share it with whomever we come into contact.
God’s love, it needs to be shared
