Love is a product of a heart that is built on self-sacrifice. Love is a way of life - not a burden. It is part of a man's daily activities that deserves a reward. Do not forget that any work without an attached reward is burdensome and a waste of time. One of the best work-forces to join is the Love-force because there are great rewards attached to it.
My association with people all through the years tells me that it is one thing to work and another thing to do the work that is rewarding. Love is a work. This is why you must take the love concept as a privileged assignment and not a burden. To be an effective lover, you must be ready to take pleasure in all that you do.
True service is a product of love. To be a true lover, a good relationship with the Almighty God is very necessary. That is to say that the platform for that relationship must be defined by you. This is because there is a clear line between serving God for what He can do for you and serving Him for who He is. When you remove your mind from the reward system - a hunger for what you can get - and truly decide to love God, you will discover in time that selfless love is the only platform for a personal and intimate relationship with God.
The subject of love is the same everywhere. It is the love for God that sets the platform for the love of others. Love does not require gifts to be real, but the real object of love itself. Certainly, what one gives in a relationship is what makes the most impressive legacy, than what one receives. For one to be in love, one's time, energy, money, etc must be spent, without a conscious expectation of what one will receive in return. Where there is a love relationship, services are not based on reward, but on the interest of the one being loved.
Do you want to be a true lover? Do you want to fly on a lover's wings? Then allow God to live in your life. He is the source of your nourishment and wealth. Cultivate an ever-growing relationship with Him by spending your time with Him in prayer, reading and studying His Word. It is only the presence of God in your life that makes all the differences. When you keep God first, you will be amazed at what He will do for you. Do not forget that the proof of love is not in spoken words, it is embedded in action. It is the love that God has for us that made Him to take such a great action on our behalf - giving His only Son Jesus as a sacrifice for our salvation! Your services to God or man will carry greater rewards only when they are done out of a genuine love (John 3:16).
This is a clear indication that the state of your heart in the business of love is far more important than the love you are expressing. It is a good thing to show love but it is most profitable when it is done with a right heart. Think about that relationship you about to enter or the one you are already involved in. What is the prime motive? What is the driving force of your sudden outburst to that man or lady in the name of "love"? Are you really in a wholesome relationship or you are just trying to answer the call of LUSTFUL desires? Have you given it a thought why 7 out of 10 marriages today end up in divorce? Do you feel that those concerned were not truly attracted to each other? What then could be the problem?
Friend, the way your heart is important to you in the physical, that is how it is in the spiritual realm. A man's conscience is always a tool for right judgment. Allow your conscience to judge you in ever matter of your life. In your reflections, always remember that your outer man is only your reputation with man, but your heart - your inner man - remains the only reputation you have with God, and that is what makes you taller than your equals. Indeed, if God can only see your heart of love towards Him, you will be amazed at what He will put in your hands. He will definitely make you fly on divine wings!
