The Three Types of Love

I wrote a great article on my blog for women today and I wanted to share it with each of you. I will just be going over the basics of that article, so make sure to check it out by clicking here. In today’s post, I want to share a video I watched in my morning devotional time. The video was Dr. Martin Luther King’s voice and clips from various rallies and his time as a pastor. The devotion was about learning to be a peacemaker. What does that have to do with love you ask? Well as I learned, love is at the heart of every peacemaker. Since I am a follower of Jesus, I discussed that the best way I can love is by receiving love from my creator, then in turn, it helps me to love God, myself, and others. I may not do this perfectly, yet I strive each day to be better. In a way, you could say I’m not only a peacemaker, I’m creating a legacy of love for future generations. I will put a link to the video from Pastor King below. As you watch it I encourage you – just like I did my readers on MDE – to think about what it means to see through the eyes of love, to become a peacemaker and not just a peace keeper, and ask yourself, “what would happen if I learned to stand in the gap for others instead of picking sides.”

A DAY TO LOVE

Why do we celebrate Valentines? I thought of this as we are fast approaching the holiday. Is it just so Hallmark and other company’s can push their sales? Is it for husbands – or wives, cause let’s be honest – can make up for stupid stuff done the rest of the year? I don’t think so. For me personally, Valentines represents the one day that I don’t just say I love you to my man, it is dedicated to the love we have built together. To me, it is a day I can show others what true and pure love looks like. Because I know that I am loved by my God, and He is the only one who can make me complete and happy, I am able to love my spouse, in both good times and bad. Now, I am not trying to be preachy here, so just go with me.

As a parent, you want your child to grow up to be a strong, confident, good human being. Right? Well, if they only felt happy when you gave them things and bent to their will, they wouldn’t grow up to be all those things. They would be selfish, self – centered individuals. This is what I am talking about. Because the child knows you love them, and they choose to have a close relationship with you, then they can grow up to love others properly and become good people that abide by the laws of the land. They know they are loved, they know where their joy comes from – because no matter what mom and dad loves them -, and they know what pure love looks like. This is my hope this Valentines Day. I hope that even if no one tells you how much you are loved or what your true worth is, I hope you read this carefully and get this deep in your heart. Jesus loves you deeply, he isn’t mad at you, and he actually wants to have a fun, cool, deep, roll – with – the – punches kind of relationship with you. If you will hold on to hope and know that regardless of what others say or what is going on right now, there is a God, he is real, and He loves you like crazy. This is a 24/7 kind of love. And this is what I think Valentines is really about!
