Love is Giving….
In the physical world, we need to have, so we can give. Yet in the intangible world, we need to give, so we can have.
Love, for instance, is generated by our heart out of the desire to love someone else; unless such desire exists, love will not be generated or felt.
Let’s give it, so we can have it. If we wait to have it, so we can give it, we’ll never experience it. Today, let’s look for ways on how we can love those around us in spite of what they do. Remember we are also doing it for ourselves.
What you keep to yourself you lose, what you give away, you keep forever.
Say to yourself, Today I will love… Today I will love without the expectation of a response. Today, I will love deeply. Today, I will love without hesitation or reservation. Today, I will love for the sheer joy that it brings. Today, I will love with honour and courage and dignity. Today, I will know that God is real, because I love. Regardless of what appears before me today, I will love. I will love, simply love.
Remember, you can’t buy love, but you can pay heavily for it.
