Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, 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. 1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-7
1 john 4:8 tells us that, ‘God is love’. And because man was made in the image of God, it takes true love for you to reach where God wants you to reach in life. Love is very crucial because it determines a person’s outcome in life. Joseph had a dream of becoming a Prime Minister, but his dream could not come to pass until he interpreted someone else’s dream (Genesis 41).
In order for anybody to be ‘made’ in life, there must be love. Do you have a destiny to fulfil? Is there something you think God want you to achieve with your life? it is the walk of love that will help you achieve it because it is the walk of love that makes a man.
What is true Love?
It is dwelling in a realm of selfless existence. True love is never self-centred or self-absorbed. Selfishness and hatred are opposed to love. True love displays a genuine interest in the lives and destinies of others. A loveless person is self-absorbed and self-focused. Selfishness motivated the armed robber to steal. it is self-centredness that made Jezebel and Delilah to go for another person’s husband.
Self-centredness is also the reason why corrupt government official will take public money without any feelings of wrong. He doesn’t care about other people’s destinies. The major bulk of the evils of our generation is the manifestation of selfishness and lovelessness.
True love sacrifices and inconveniences itself for the sake of others. This was why Jesus Christ said, ‘Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends’ (John 15:13). And i pray as you embark on this journey, your life and destiny will never remain the same, in Jesus’ Name.
When you live for yourself, you live like a slave; but when you live beyond yourself, you live beyond your time. God bless you
