So many words been written about love. Plays and movies are spattered with it. We grow up learning about love and how important it is to have it and to give it away. We experience it through smiles on children’s faces, in the songs we hear, in the touch of a hand, the smell of a rose or the taste of a lovingly prepared meal.
Love takes many forms. It can be the romantic feeing experienced with that first kiss – the love of a friend who will go to bat for you anytime – the love of a person for their aging parent – the love of a child – the unconditional love of a pet – the continuous love of the one you have pledged your life to.
There is a love that we can’t begin to comprehend. It’s the truly unconditional, caring, undeserved, love of God Himself. His love cannot be measured by human standards. He loves us even though we deserve punishment. He loves us with a perfect love that we’ll never experience on this side of eternity.
The book inspired by Him and penned by men like us, is full of love stories. There are tales of passion, lust, love for belongings, love for self, love of money, desire, unrequited love, love for sale, all the love known to man.
The greatest love story ever told is also included in this book. The Bible tells us how special we are to our Creator -how He has a plan for our life – how He loves us even though we turn our backs on Him. He loves us so much that He wants us to spend eternity with Him in heaven and He gave His life so that we would.
Pick it up and read it. It’s the greatest love story ever told.
