Because God is love, the most important lesson he wants us to learn on earth is how to love. It is in love that we most like God, so love is the foundation of every command he has given us. The whole law can be summed up in this one command: ‘Love others as you love yourself.‘- Gal 5:14.
God wants us to be in a regular, close fellowship with other believers , so you can develop the skill of loving. Love cannot be learned in isolation. you have to be around people- irritating, imperfect, frustrating people.
The Best Use of Life Is Love
Love should be your top priority, Primary objective and greatest ambition.Love is not a good part of your life it is the most important part. “Let love be your greatest aim.“- I cor.14:1a.
Relationship must have top priority in our lives above every other thing. Why?
- Life without love is worthless
No matter what you say, what you believe and what you do, you are bankrupt without love. Four of the 10 commandments deals with our relationship to God, while the other 6 deals with our relationships with others.
You must love the lord your God with all your heart….”This is the first and the greatest commandment.A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ All the other commandments and demands of the Prophets are based on these 2 commandments.-Matt. 22:37-40.
After learning to love God (Worship), Learning to love others is the second purpose of your life.
- Love will last forever
Another reason why God tells us to make love our top priority is that it is eternal. These 3 things continue forever: faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is Love.
It is your Love not your wealth or accomplishment that leaves a legacy- how you treated people.
- We will be evaluated on our Love
The third reason to make learning to love your priority is that it is what we will be evaluated on in eternity. One of the ways God measures spiritual maturity is on the quality of your relationships.
The Best Expression of Love Is Time
The importance of things can be measured by how much time we are willing to invest in them.The more time you give to something, the more you reveal its importance and value to you.
Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it.You can make more money but you can’t make more time. when you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you will never get back. Your time is your life.This is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.
Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is T-I-M-E and the best time to Love is Now! why? Because you don’t know how long you will have the opportunity. Circumstances change, people die, children grow up. you have no guarantee of tomorrow.
The best use of life is love. The best expression of love is time, the best time to love is now.
