The Light Daily Devotional – Love is not Blind
Caption : Love is not Blind
KEY WORD FOR TODAY
Love is not blind; it only closes the eyes of men. Every wise man will never take love for granted but will rather give it what it deserves to keep its flame alive!
Scriptural Reference: “Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins [forgives and disregards the offenses of others].” (1 Peter 4:8 AMP).
Life is beautiful when true love becomes the order of the day or the lifestyle of men. A man who cannot overlook the shortcomings in the lives of men cannot love according to the will of God.
The Lord who is the creator of all men is not ignorant of the weakness in the lives of His creation. Therefore, He commanded all men to love one another just to make up with the inadequacies in every individual’s life. The fact that we are created for relationships shows that we need to be loved by others to complement our lives.
Love is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” (1 Cor 13:5). When true love becomes the order of the day, it appears as if it is blind; its flame burns every shortcomings due to its characteristics. However, when taken for granted, the flame dies a natural death and brings every shortcomings to limelight.
It is not enough to have a wonderful relationship; you must do everything possible to fan the flame of love to keep it lively. Don’t be complacent with various inadequacies in your life but make efforts through the help of God to get better in various aspects of life, to make your life more attractive to people.
God is love; He gave His only son for the remission of our sins. He is still a consuming fire. If you don’t want to perish; don’t take His love for granted (Jn 3:16).
