All You Need Is Love

All You Need Is Love – John Lennon

Yesterday, my husband and I had lunch at a local restaurant. I couldn’t help but notice that our waitress was very pregnant and I asked her what her due date was. She was expecting in January and we had a nice chat about the excitement of having a child. She said she was nervous.

I told her that nothing will ever be able to prepare her for the love she will feel for this child when it arrives, which is true.

I was an only child and always knew that my parents loved me, but until I had a child of my own, I had no idea the depth of the love they felt for me.

I believe having my children brought me an entirely new perspective on life in general and it has made me aware of just how deep God loves all of us.

As a Christian, I read about God’s unconditional love for me. I always believed he had an unconditional love for all of us. However, it wasn’t until I had my daughter that I understood what unconditional love really means and it wasn’t until I had all three of my children that I truly came close to understand how God loves all of us.

As a mother of three, I can honestly tell you that I do not love any of my children more than the other. I can also state that there is nothing any of them could ever do that would make me stop loving them just as I do now. There is no crime they could commit, no horrible act that would cause me to lose my love for them. I am not always happy with some of the things my children do, but that does not change the way I feel about them.

From a world perspective, this is how I believe God loves each of us. Everyone, from the vilest criminal to the most charitable, loving person is loved by Him unconditionally. He may not like the decisions some of us make, but His love for us is unchanging.

And just as it hurts me to see my children arguing, how much more it must hurt Him to see hatred among us.
Jesus instructed us to “Love one another as I have loved you.”

1 Corinthians Chapter 13 tells us: And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

There is no place for hate in this world and infinite space available for love.

May we all remember this as we live our lives and may we all love one another as He loves us.
