The Gift of Love

How can I not write about love today? The landscape is littered with hearts, candy and flowers. Yesterday I wrote about the gift of Hope, and today we look at Love. The ability to love is amazing. The idea that we can choose to love or not to love makes the concept of love even more grand.

The fact that I don’t have to love you, but I choose instead to love you gives a great weight to that decision.

In religious circles the love that was expressed by Jesus’ dying for mankind was a choice. It was an act He could choose to do or not do. Considering the pain of the consequences of His choice, it is also important to add the joy with which He progressed toward the end of His life. He knew the need of His act, but He also knew that it had to be done in love. That expression of love exemplifies to us, all other expressions of love.
