Can you do that?

Sunday morning I was in church listening from my post in the back pew when the preacher asked a question to which he received raised eyebrows and strange looks.

“Can we choose who we love?” The love part I understood, I mean Tuesday os St. Valentine’s day, but the choosing part took some explanation. It was in the preacher’s explanation that he described sacrificial love (the highest form of love) and how the Baptist religion believes Jesus demonstrated this love for all people throughout time with his life and we should follow said example. It is possible to choose to love everyone we meet because we have an example in christ’s life.

Now  I am not sure about your religious beliefs but the Beatles had it right when they sang “all we need is love”. It is without doubt that we could all use a little more love in this world. I began to think about this then I began to think about the children and how their examples are the adults much like the adults example is christ and I began to wonder if I demonstrated any love at all, let alone sacrificial love.  So with St. Valentine’s on, the very near, horizon I think it important to remember who we are and who is watching.

 

Got this cool pic of kids holding up the sign with the word love from here: http://justwhatshappentobeonmymind.wordpress.com/2012/02/11/love-pictures/
