Well i looked out of my window one day and i saw two little girls give a man a welcome-home hug. And then i thought of something-that probably the man had scolded them just before leaving the house but children being who they are had forgiven and forgotten about that and they heartily welcomed him home.
However,that is God’s instruction for u: ‘to love like children but act like adults’.
I heard of a man who walked up to his pastor saying he does not love his wife any longer,the pastor told him that God instructs all husbands to love their wives. The man insisted that she is no longer his wife and that they actually sleep in separate rooms but the pastor said “God also told us to love our neighbors”. But then the man said “in fact we are not neighbors,we are enemies because we always disagree on everything”. The pastor however said “God said we should love our enemies”.
The man’s hands dropped because for every reason we have not to love, God still commands us to love. This sounds real difficult right? Yes but that’s what we are expected to do, we are to love like children but act like adults…
may God help us so to do.
