From childhood to adulthood, we all enjoy playing with things that bring joy to our lives.
Athletes play and maximize their talents in sports. Their enthusiasm exudes in the results of the game. Speaking for myself, I enjoy playing with new gadgets. Gadgets present learning curves that drive my soul to new heights and levels of excitement. For my wife, it’s a little different. She enjoys taking blueprints of homes and reconstructing them to fit her style. She’s gets excited playing around with this type of stuff.
But one thing that I’ve learned over the years is to not PLAY WITH LOVE. There was a popular song entitled: “I Learned To Respect The Power of Love.” LOVE is a prescious commodity that deserves its rightful place.
One of the reasons we experience such physical, emotional and psychological baggage in our relationships is by not giving LOVE its just due.
When we don’t know the purpose of thing, we will abuse it (ab-normal) use of it. LOVE is patient, LOVE is kind, LOVE does not envy and LOVE does not boast, you finish the rest….
It bothers me to witness a person dangling LOVE over another to manipulate their lives, but imagine what two people can do together when they understand, respect and exercise LOVE properly. The potential for their relationship could be limitless.
Keep a joyful spirit, and LOVE with wreckless abandonment.
