Love’s Limit

Mark 12:30 And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. (NLT)

Love.  Frequently misunderstood and often misconstrued. Spoken by teenagers who are experiencing their first bout of puppy love. Or by the couple involved in an extramarital affair. By one spouse to another and by a parent to their child. There’s friendship love and sexual love, but the most admirable is agape’. The type that gives unconditionally and doesn’t require a response to keep giving. The kind that can only exist when we’ve experienced God’s love. When we love God with all our being, we can learn to love ourselves and others. And this makes the world a better place.
