The Wonders Of Love




Love is the most powerful force in the universe. As they say, love makes the world go round. The purest and the most sublime kind of love comes from God.

Selfish or egotistical love is self centered. It will only exhibit a form of love for others not because they really love others, but they love the affection, attention and
and adulation that the object of their selfish love will give back to them.

In other words, they love the object of their fanciful attraction until it suits them fine. When the fleeting attraction fades or recedes, they jilt the object of their temporary affection as often and as easily as they change their clothes or shoes.

The passionate or obsessive love is, more often than not, a fleeting one because its natural foundation is based on raw passion and obsessive emotions centered mostly on physical attraction and sex.

True love, as I said, comes from God. It is centered not on itself but on God. And when that person loves, he focuses more at the object of his affection than on himself because he is extending God's love inside his being to his object of affection. His love is the selfless kind of love and does not depend on the intensity of love of his beloved. In due time, when the partner also becomes attuned to God, she too would radiate the same kind of selfless love originating from her Creator.

This kind of love will surely lasts a lifetime and beyond.

God's love is no ordinary love because He was even willing to die for us and for our salvation. He loves without conditions. In fact, He teaches us to love our enemies, not only those who are lovable. Have a blessed day to you brother mel

LOVE, indeed, is the greatest gift from GOD. But sometimes, a person can't see the difference between TRUE LOVE and OBSESSION. He wants the object of his affection all by himself, very much convinced that he is the right person for her. He doesn't seem to realize that it's not for him to decide.. The greatest depiction of love besides GOD's love to men is a mother's unconditional love to her child. However, not ALL mothers love their children the way they should..

Nobody could argue how our Creator had showered us with eternal love and by honoring Him is one way to give in return.

However, too many people seemed to forget about this because they are inundated with material things. Not realizing that these fleeting joys are as brief as their lives on earth.

Hi Kimmy,
How right you are. Your depiction of the greatness of a mother's love for her child is very accurate. Aside from the love of God for His creation especially man, a mother's love for her child is unmatched. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
