We hear this word every day, everywhere, from our homes, our telephones, from friends, colleagues and even strangers. We even hear it from the songs we listen to and the movies we watch
Actually this phrase is used everywhere and every time that it makes it appear that everyone loves every one and that love is all around us.
However you will bear me witness that the above is not necessarily true.
Let’s face it! Around us we have people that really don’t wish the best for us, we have people that don’t care about us and we even have haters. So love cannot be everywhere.
Some people openly argue and say that not everyone deserves to be loved. I have heard this statement several times, “she is so unlovable”. Or “I don’t feel him or her”. Then I ask, is love a feeling or a choice?
MY OPINION IS THAT; LOVE IS A CHOICE.
Because of the above, everyone is capable and deserves to be loved. I don’t have to feel you or feel good about you to love you. I can choose to love you with your weaknesses and strength. After all nobody is perfect. We are all imperfect beings who God chose to love despite our sinful nature. We should do the same to others regardless of age, race, tribe and physical appearance.
A PIECE OF ADVICE THOUGH…., DON’T SAY I LOVE YOU IF YOU DON’T MEAN IT!
Have you ever used the words “I love you” as a way to get something you wanted? Or even just as a compliment? Or maybe to offset something mean that slipped out, like saying to a friend, “You look like a mess — but I love you!” Sometimes those things happen, and if there’s no easy way to get around a mistake, “I love you” seems to be a sufficient fix to the problem.
Many people have come to the point where it’s easy, and even convenient, to throw around a phrase that used to mean everything. Some people just don’t understand that if we said it a little less, it might mean more when we do say it. If we said “I love you” only to people we truly loved, we’d hear this phrase a lot less.
The phrase means a lot to whoever hears it. Let’s say it only when we mean it.
