“The whole point of what we’re urging is simply love—love uncontaminated by self-interest and counterfeit faith, a life open to God.” (I Timothy 1: 5, the Message Bible)
There is no better point and none more powerful. We are being urged to love. And while it may sound like a simple thing, it requires something of us.
The love that can change lives, that can heal and uplift and bring true justice, is a love that is pure and real. It is a genuine affection that is not forced and that doesn’t require something in return. To simply love is to express that tender goodness that is God’s own Love for us and in us. It is the truest sense of free love, for it is naturally ours and it is abundantly available to feel and to share.
To access and utilize this love means we must let go of our egos and our neediness and live in a way that is open to God, to grace. This love is humbly receptive and generous. It is unconditional and non-judgmental. And it is ultimately the greatest act we can do for others and the greatest gift we can give to ourselves.
