Love Under New Management

What does love mean to you? Iʼm talking about real love. Is it superficial? Is it about
what you can take or what you can give? Iʼm sure we can agree that we need more love
in our world. However, it will never be seen in the world if it isnʼt exemplified in our
hearts.

As we approach Valentineʼs Day, so many people are caught in a matrix of euphoria
from the aroma of the chocolates, to the delightfully arranged dozen roses, and the
delicious meals consumed at five-star restaurants. Yet after the chocolates have turned
stale, the roses have wilted, and the left over meal lies dormant in the fridge is there
enough love that goes beyond one day and is reflected in your life everyday? When
everything else grows stale and stagnant, only the love you show will remain fresh and
new.

Looking for love in all the wrong places is not worth it, just to find a Valentine. You donʼt
have to go searching for love. If you become love and reflect the spirit of love, then love
will find you. In essence, you will attract who/what you are.

Oftentimes, we get so caught up in giving gifts that we fail to realize we are a gift to
somebody, even if itʼs to ourselves. You are a red box and gold bow...a gift to the world.
Tangible gifts donʼt replace love because love is the greatest gift. You may be alone, but
it doesnʼt mean you have to be lonely. You can never expect anybody to love you, until
you start loving yourself.

Even in a world filled with hate, love is still preeminent. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
declared, "hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that." You canʼt show love with
bitterness, anger, strife, and hatred in your heart. Love and hate cannot occupy the
same space, one will cancel out the other.

When you connect to God, He provides you with love under new management. No more
games, gimmicks, tricks, or schemes. Itʼs His love for you out of the depth of who He is
that empowers you to love yourself, love others, and walk in your unique purpose. His
love for you reconciles you to Him, yourself, and to those around you.

Love has a boomerang effect...the more love you share with others, the more it comes
back to you. Love is more than just a word and it intensifies when we give it mean. Love
is not about what it says, love is about what it does.

Love doesnʼt neglect, it protects. Love is not selfish, itʼs selfless.

Remember that true love is about more than finding a perfect person, true love is about
learning to love an imperfect person perfectly.

True love can drive out hate.

True love can transform death into life. True love can use stumbling blocks as stepping stones. True love can help a hurting hater. True love can be good to somebody who was never good to you. Letʼs be an example of love according to the love letter in I Corinthians 13, which declares, “love is patient, love is kind, love is never jealous, and love is not envious.”

When we understand the power of love and Godʼs love, then we can love ourselves and express love to each other. When youʼre living in love under new management it frees you from your past, causes you to forgive those who hurt you, and gives you peace to move forward knowing that the best is yet to come.
