Choosing Love

V-day

I wish every day was dedicated to spreading love, not just a few. I fervently believe that love is a choice and a commitment. We choose to love or we choose not to love. Love is controllable; it does not just happen to us. And, if we only love others on and off like a light switch, or just on holidays, we do not love others like God wants us to love. Jesus said, “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?” (Luke 6:32 NIV)

Anybody can love those who love them. Becoming a master lover means you learn to love the unlovable. It’s when you love people who don’t love you, when you love people who irritate you, when you love people who stab you in the back or gossip about you. – Rick Warren/Daily Hope

This may seem like an impossible task. That is why we need God’s love in us, so we can then love others: “We know and rely on the love God has for us.” (1 John 4:16 NIV)

When you realize how much God loves you — with an extravagant, irresistible, unconditional love — then his love will change your entire focus on life. If we don’t receive God’s love for us, we’ll have a hard time loving other people. I’m talking about loving the unlovely, loving the difficult, loving the irritable, loving people who are different or demanding.
