is so wonderful knowing that you are loved in this life.
A soul that knows that it is loved has little trouble
loving as well. The soul, in fact, hungers for love.
We all want to be loved. We want to be loved by our
parents. We want to be loved by our brothers and
sisters. We want to be loved by our friends and
family. We want to be loved by our husbands and
wives. We want to be loved by our children. We
want to be loved by everyone.
It is a lack of love more than anything else that causes
so many problems in this world. If we all loved each
other, there would be no war. How can you kill
someone you truly love? There would be no starvation
either. How can you let someone you love go hungry?
There would also be no abused children. How can you
hurt someone you love? There would be no endangered
Earth as well. How can you pollute and damage a
planet that you love?
We all need to choose love. We all need to share
love with everyone unconditionally. We all need to
learn to love. How can we do this? How can we
choose, share, and learn to love? I think that the
first step is to realize that we are loved ourselves.
God loves us all. It doesn't matter who we are or
what we have done. God still loves us. God
forgives us our mistakes and loves us for who we are.
Even if every other person in the world fails to love us,
God's love is eternal. It never wavers, never
lessens, and never ends. All we have to do is open
our hearts and accept it. God's love is always there
and is always unconditional.
Know that you are loved then. Know that God loves
you. With God's love in your heart you can love as
well. You can choose love, share love, and learn to
love more each day. You can help to bring this world
and all who live in it to the love they so desperately
