The Choice to Love

The world is filled with love and hate. The wise person says, “I choose the road of love because its potential is far greater than the road of hate.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” I believe he was right. Some will say, “But she doesn’t deserve love.” If we do not choose to love people ‘more than they deserve,’ then few of us will ever express love. Love is a choice we make every day. It is the choice to be reflectors of God. The Bible says, “God is love.” That is His nature. As His children, we become His voice, expressing His love whether people deserve it or not. It is love that draws people to God and to us. Look for an opportunity to express love to someone today.
