It is common knowledge that one cannot say he/she has loved with out giving. Love* is expressed in giving and the ultimate gift one can offer is one’s self/life. God expressed this kind of love towards us by giving himself – Christ – as a ransom for our lives; indeed, He did not love us because we loved him first, but while we were yet in sin He died for us. This is pure unadulterated love.
Let us replicate the example that has been set for us by our Lord and Saviour. Dare to show practical love to someone who needs it; to a person that cannot repay your act of kindness. Happy Easter people!
*I do not believe in the concept of ‘true love’. It is either love or it is not! It is either love or lust!!
