Our Message From Andrea Lawson …

 

We love because God first loved us.  I do not have to tell you that I am not always lovable.  There are times I certainly can’t love myself, so how could I expect anyone else to? Right? Well, God does not place conditions on the love He gives us.  He does, however, give us direct instruction to love others as He loves us…I don’t even pretend to do that.  I love those who are easy to love.  I love those that I choose to love…I do not even make an attempt to love the unlovable…but, wait, that is me (the not so easy to love person).  Where would I be without the love of others?  Where would I be without the love of God? I’ve heard it said that we don’t like in others the things we don’t like in ourselves.  I would say there is some truth to that.  So, when we are given the opportunity to show love to the unlovable, maybe we can learn to love ourselves a little more.  And, if we can then extend that love to others, maybe we can be a little more forgiving, maybe cut some slack to someone, and maybe be a little more patient.  The Bible says, “We know and rely on the love God has for us” (1 John 4:16).  Do you know the love of God?  Do you rely on the love God has for you?  As we think about love during February, the “Love Month,” let’s remember that we are loved by God unconditionally; and He commands us to love others as He loves us.

I am glad that He loves me…the unlovable.
