Gut Check. Courageous love has no Boundaries.

Posted: March 19, 2016 in Uncategorized

Many measurements, books and suggestions have contributed to an understanding of what courage looks like. It can be seen in a war in Syria, in the withholding of caustic words in a political debate, with a strong defense of truth or, by someone changing their thought patterns. But perhaps courage has more to do with a resolved determination and demonstration of love with no boundaries.

John 13:34 and 35 offers the proof of whether we are the real deal or we’re just blowing smoke. This may just be the climax off what a courageous life looks life. It’s the commitment that says “there’s nothing anyone can do or say that will change my willingness to demonstrate my commitment to pursuing the best for another.” It’s the choice to never put conditions on whether I will love you.

What usually breaks that commitment? Harshly spoken words against you, a deserved embrace not given, avoiding another person because they said something untrue about you. What would you include on a list of “How I know they really love me?” The harder list could be “How I know I really love them.”

WHAT THIS MEANS: Check out Leviticus 19:18 and 1 Peter 1:22. Think about whether God put any conditions on loving others or whether you are loving people deeply from your heart. What does that mean anyway?
