Dear brothers and sisters,
The beloved are boyfriend/ girlfriend, husband/ wife, child, mom, dad, brother, sister, the best friend…
Between God and your beloved, who you love more? What happens when you love God more? What happens when you love your beloved more?
When you love your beloved the most in the world, you’ll love with a lot of pain.
Because you believe your beloved is your true happiness, but such happiness can be fleeting. It comes and goes. It only stands by you some time and then it goes away. It doesn’t stay with you forever. So it is not the true happiness.
Therefore when happiness comes, you are joyful; when happiness goes, you feel angry, bored, hurt, unjust, hopeless and can not love people anymore. So you love with a lot of pain. You have not the true happiness in all your life – you are joyful today and sorrowful tomorrow.
When you love God the most in the world, you love with a little pain, or no suffering.
Life always changes. However it changes, you can always stay peaceful, love life and love people when you know deeply that God is love (1 John 4:16) and God is with you.
Seek God first and you will be full (Matthew 6:33).
Have a love day.
