Love is beautiful
I went to Gloria Jeans yesterday while Ellie's having her dance lesson. There were a young dating couple stood there waiting for their coffee. I couldn't help peeking at the girl. I know her briefly. I've seen her around in church. But at that moment, with her boyfriend, she looked sooooo beautiful, so luxious and so full of life. You can easily see that she's deep in love with that boy. And that love makes her so different.
Love is the most beautiful thing in the world. When you have love, true love, you feel God is within you.
A lot of times people tend to pretend love that they don't really have, especially in church, and that doesn't make love beautiful.
I think God gives each and everyone of us a portion of His love in us, toward some people, some particular things, etc. Just like Helen Keller's teacher Anne(I hope I got the names right). She had an extraordinary love for Helen, and she poured it out her life to show her love to that blind, dumb and deaf girl. Her love must be from God. She might not have any extraodinary love for her neighbours or her sunday school kids, but toward Helen, she gave her life out.
God doesn't want us to love every person in the street when we don't have the love. It's hard to love Helen if we don't have God's love. But when God put His love in Anne, she just can't help but to love Helen, and it wasn't that difficult for her to do that.
God gives His love to us toward certain areas, certain people. And He'll let us know it. We don't have to feel guilty if we don't love certain people as the other people do. Different people have different callings. But if we live in the love that God puts in us, and allow that love to flow out, bountily, without excuse, without trying to hold back, we'll see the beauty and the power of that love.
For Anne, Helen could possibly be the only person she loved....but that love has touched millions of people. She became extraordinary because she allowed that extraordinary love to freely flow out.
