Fruits of the Spirit: Love

What is love? Love is unconditional, strong, and impossible to stop. Sometimes loving somebody is hard. For example, I love my little cousin, Chase. But sometimes he gets so annoying I want to throw him to China! However these annoyances are only to get my attention because I know he loves me too. This is called Hesed. Hesed is the strongest, most unbreakable, unconditional love in the universe. Love is beautiful and nothing can mar this beauty. Love is not to be taken lightly, however. It is a tool for both good and evil. The devil tries to make us love all of the bad things in the world which will turn us into evil people. God combats this by giving us good things to love which brings us closer towards him and away from Satan. 

People who love people, doing nice things, being kind, going to church, and trying to boost people’s spirits have allowed God to take control of their lives and are walking side by side with him.

Just remember, the more of these things you do, God will love you more, you will love people more, and people will love you back. Love is mutual.

  1. The greatest example of hesed is God’s love for us and his sending his only son to die for our salvation. Imagine loving someone so intently that we would make such a significant sacrifice. This kind of love is rare and for those of us who have experienced it from other human beings is a true gift.
    You are a perfect example of love, the kind ways that you care for others, and your love for God is remarkable. You have a wisdom and sincerity that is often lost on teenagers and I am glad that you feel strongly enough to share your thoughts with us.
