Love 32

Day 32

Genesis 29:20

…because of his love for her.

 

Can you hear Diana Rose sing “Ain’t no mountain high enough, ain’t not valley low enough, ain’t no river wide enough… to keep me from getting to you.”

Jacob worked for the love of Rachel “and it seemed but a few days”. There are two lessons we can learn from these two lovers.

First, love takes work.

After that giddy, sweaty palm, can’t sleep, first love thing comes the reality of the cost of your love for another person. You change, she changes, he changes, and compromises have to be made. What once were endearing quirks are now annoying bad habits. The freedoms you used to have are now shared negotiations as you adapt to each other. Selfish becomes selfless.

The second thing we learn from these Old Testament lovers is this: if you truly love someone all the work, all the changes and annoyances that must be dealt with mean nothing compared to your love for one another.

No mountain, valley, river, or years of hard work can keep you from loving and being loved.

 

  1. How far are you willing to go for your loved one? Name the limits. I will love until…I will love if… I will love except…

  2. Are there limits to your love? Be honest and confront your limits.

  3. If there are conditions placed on your love is it true love? If it isn’t true love what is it?
