Love Over Time

Love is the thing that will you make you do just about anything.  Love was the motive for Jacob working for Laban for seven years.  When Jacob saw Rachel for the first time, it was love at first sight.  This love kept him working for seven years.  When Laban tricked him and gave him Leah instead of Rachel, Jacob was willing to work for another seven years for Rachel.  It was love that moved the hand of God to send His Son to die on the cross for the sins of mankind.  John 3:16 says, that God so loved the world that He was willing to send His own son.  Love is willing to give without expecting anything in return.  Funny thing about love. it can be the most beautiful thing or love can be the most destructive thing to a person.  It depends on how you respond.  The love of God can bring you to Christ.  The rejection of this love can bring eternal separation from God.  The choice is man’s.  God is reaching out to you in His love today.  Let Him touch your life with it, also reach out in love today.  You are God’s hand extended.
