Mrs Brew has given me some of that over the past 30 years. She has given me quite a lot of that in fact, and I have given her some of the same. I don't stand down, and neither does she...no matter what. But guess what? We admire that in one another! We cherish it too. Sometimes she says "I'm sorry" first, and sometimes that sorry person be me. It's LOVE!
Love is different, and I think is God's favorite. You can't force someone to do it, feel it, or show it. You can force folks to do a great many things, but LOVE! isn't one of them. It just isn't! It stands it's ground every time, and has 1 Corinthians chapter 13 scribed on it's "business" card.
"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV)
Yeah, that's an understatement if ever I saw one. It's akin to saying that wheels are rather round or that fire is burningly sound...crackly, bright, and pretty too :-)
Love has no equal, and neither nothing nor nobody can hold a candle to it, lest they be burnt by love's own inherent searing flame.
Nothing can melt you like LOVE. Nothing can inspire you like LOVE. Nothing can motivate you like LOVE. Nothing is more human than LOVE. It makes you do stuff, say stuff, and feel stuff...and THAT's the stuff of LOVE!
Want to play and hear music about love. If you don't, you're in the wrong place.
Put your headphones on and turn it up!!!
