Love is interesting, in that there seems to be so many different types of it but in all actuality there is only one type of love with many components and aspects. As humans, our ability to love another has been limited by our own perceptions and experiences. We read in the Bible that the most important commandment is to love one another, but I don’t think we really understand how to.
I, myself, struggle with this on a daily basis. I love everyone because it is the commandment of God and I want to obey God because I love Him. However, I say, think and do things to others that show that I do not truly love them. Sound familiar in your life too?
Don’t be ashamed. I believe that this is natural to us now due to our experiences so it would be difficult to think we could/should love each other more. The movies, TV shows and our relationships show us an extremely limited part of love. There is so much more to it than endearing feelings and actions towards those we are familiar with.
Now for those of us who have gone past that and have moved into doing helpful things for those we love, we believe that we are doing alot since we are not personally related to these people and we don’t dig deeper. But again that is another extremely limited component of love.
If God, the creator of everything, repeatedly tells us that love is the most important thing in our lives and loves us more than we could ever imagine, then you would want to feel more and do more for others, right?
