1 John 4:19
We love, because he first loved us.
One of the reasons two people fall in love is because of how they feel about themselves when they are with each other. They allow each other to feel accepted and beautiful. They inspire one another to be their best. 1 Corinthians 13 says:
Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful;
it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends;
When we are rejected by someone we love, or that love is not reciprocated , that love takes on a different form. When that happens it can become a blessing. It can be God’s way of showing us how He loves us even when we didn’t love Him. He trusts us enough to have a glimpse of how He loves, to personally experience love incarnate. Instead of feeling disappointed, we should feel delighted and privileged that He wants us to experience that type of love. So, be glad, rejoice and keep loving!
