Tough Love!

I get excited when I’m with people I love, and who love me.

Yet Jesus showed that love involves pain.

Paul felt love’s pain when he wrote: “I will gladly spend and be spent for you, although I know that the more I love you, the less I am loved by you.”

People may misunderstand me…or reject me…or intentionally offend me. Yet godly love leads me to hold the relationship open. 

Sometimes, this is tough. Tough love?

I’m inspired by Paul’s confidence that love’s problems don’t last, but that joy does. . . if I truly love!
