God Is Love

God is love and love is for all who desire to be loved.  When you love God, it's easy to love people. So why is it so hard to love with a genuine heart?  Perhaps it's because some people don't love God or themselves so it's hard to love someone else.

I say, try to love God by accepting His Son (if you have not already done so) then try loving yourself the way God loves you -- unconditionally.  Then try loving someone else the way you love yourself -- treating them with respect and accepting them with their flaws (because we ALL have them).  Once you've done this, you've experienced the perfect love.  1 John 4:17-18

Be blessed,

- Pastor D
