Unending Love

27 Oct

Love is not a finite emotion.

  We don’t only have so much to share.

    Our hearts create love as we need it.

Does that statement give you pause? I wonder because for years I have heard comments from people that they only have so much love to share and it is not to be wasted. 

For myself, I don’t think you can waste love for it creates many returns. When you share your love with others, it raises their spirits and creates love back to you. Grandfather was correct when he said love isn’t love until you give it away. 

Love is meant to be shared and it should be shared with everyone whose path you cross everyday of your life. I believe the world would be is much better shape if we all shared our love with everyone. 

So how does one come to realize the truth in this statement? I guess we should start with your definition of love along with your definition of compassion. I say your definition because I have found peeple have different views of what each of these words mean. 

Love

 Love is a variety of different emotional and mental states, typically strongly and positively experienced, that ranges from deepest interpersonal affection to simple pleasure.

This is a generic definition of love that most would agree with. 

Compassion

Compassion motivates people to go out of their way to help the physical, mental or emotional pains of another and themselves. 

Again a generic definition that most will agree with.

Ok, we all agree that these pretty much define love and  compassion for us, but what did Jesus say we should do? He said to love our neighbors as He has loved us. To me that means we should all love each other as we love ourselves and to open our hearts to the needs of each other. 

That therefore brings us to the opening statement. Love is not a finite emotion, we have enough to share with everyone and the more we share, the more our hearts give us to share!

Walk daily with God at your side!

With all my heart,

Ed
