A Penny's Worth of Thought: Love is an action packed emotion
January 23, 2015, 8:57 AM
Do you love someone or something?

What are you going to do about it?

Love is more than a feeling.  Love always involves action.  If  you love someone then there is action required on your part.  It will be willing action, not action out of obligation.  While it is true that love does obligate us to some degree, it should never be the motivating force of our action for those that we love.  

Few, if any would argue that the above premise is not true.  

Now comes a question:  Do you love God?  

If so, are you applying the same premise of love in action towards God as you do for people?  Or are you like me?  There are times I somehow neglect to apply this love in action principle to a love for my God that first loved me and loved me so much that He sent His only son to die in my place?

His love for us led to Him sowing the greatest expression of love the world has ever known.  His love for us is perfect and unchangeable.  He will never stop loving us and He will never stop acting out His love for us.

We are to love God above all else.  Let us love Him and act out our love to him through service to Him.  Not out of obligation, but out of love.
