Simply Because We Want to Love

Jesus said, “Just as you want men to do to you, you also do
to them likewise.” (Luke 6.31) Jesus also said, “But if you love those who love
you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.”
(Luke 6.32) God doesn’t want us to love simply because He said so; He wants us
to WANT to love. When we are forced into love, it isn’t love at all, but an
obligation. Sinners love those who love them because they want something in
return, but we are called to be better than sinners. We are called to love
simply because we want to love. It’s better that way.
