I’m sure you’ve heard the expression that the world is “sin-sick.” But, if I were to give the world another “diagnosis,” I would say its “Love sick”; not in the sense that Love makes the world ill. No, instead the world misses/desires Love (like being “home sick”). Love is the “medicine” that will treat the sin problem (Above all, show sincere Love to each other, because Love brings about the forgiveness of many sins. 1 Peter 4:8 CEB). But, quite so often the “Love dealers” a/k/a Christians only want to give Love to those who are “deserving,” people who are easy to love; you know, the people who don’t sin much. But, if you ask me, the people who sin the most need the largest “doses” of Love. Unfortunately, instead of receiving the “medicine” they need, they’re scoffed at on account of their “ailment” and turned away. It’s sad that we have the “healing balm” that will help those around us, but we won’t give it to them because we don’t like their “condition.” Let’s not discriminate with our Love. Let’s give it away freely. After all, that’s what God did; He loved us while we were still in our sin. And, it was His love that turned our hearts to repentance (Romans 2:4)…The greatest love that ever existed lives on the inside of us, yet we hoard it. Let’s share Love. God is Love.  **G.I.G.**

P.S. – Since God is (true) Love, try reading 1 Peter 4:8 this way: “Above all, show sincere [God] to each other, because [God] brings about the forgiveness of many sins.”
