Value of a Life

I’ve spent years looking for love (IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES).  We all need to be needed but all too often society gives us false cues to our lines in this play called “life”.

According to Google:
Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection to pleasure. It can refer to an emotion of a strong attraction and personal attachment

According to Paul, Apostle to Jesus (after being struck blind to get his attention):
1 Corinthians 13:4-8New International Version (NIV)

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

JESUS brought REAL LOVE in total sacrifice of himself for our benefit of HOPE and FREEDOM.

Love sacrifices willingly but for a purpose,  not as a punishment to satisfy any insatiable lust for power, sex. or other control over another.

Relationships require sacrifice, but we shouldn’t give up or give in without thinking it through. It is important to consider the pros and cons, have clear communication with your partner, ask the tough questions, and make sure you are sacrificing for the right reasons. The right kind of sacrifice can bring people together, but sacrificing for the wrong reasons may be worse than no sacrifice at all.  Amie M. Gordon, Ph.D.

Jesus gave EVERYTHING he had for us, so we can be confident that we can give ALL we have for him.  And WHAT DO WE REALLY HAVE?  I arrived in this realm with ? life and life only.  All other things have accumulated along the way and I praise God for their blessing but I don’t truly own them because when I leave I don’t even take the shell that I arrived in.  SEEK Jesus with your whole being. You will find only LOVE at His core and joy will be added to your existence.

Don’t be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps.        David  Lloyd George, British Prime Minister from 1916 to 1922
