Love is Something if you Give it Away!

You may know the song that is used in the title of this post. I didn't realize it had so many verses, until I searched online for the author! Here it is with just a few of the verses: 

Love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.
It's just like a magic penny,
Hold it tight and you won't have any.
Lend it, spend it, and you'll have so many
They'll roll all over the floor.
For love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.

Some people are easy to love.  Some people are hard to love.  But, God's Word says to love everyone:  friends, neighbors, enemies, one another - EVERYONE!  Think about that as you go about your day today.  And remember, when you find someone that may be hard to love.....perhaps to someone else you are hard to love.  We must be strive to be lovable, as well!

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” 
Matthew 5:34-35

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
John 13:34

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love oneanother, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.
Romans 13:8
