I get excited when I’m with people I love, and who love me.
I’m blessed because, being human, I can experience the joys of love. But Jesus showed that sometimes 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… or reject… or intentionally offend me. Yet godly love leads me to hold the relationship open.
This is tough. Sometimes really tough.
But I get excited about spending time with the people I love. And I am inspired by Paul who understood that problems don’t last, but that joy does . . . if I love!
