The Sincerity of Love

Romans 12:9 (ESV) Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.

*Many times, we show love to people and others because we feel it is good karma or our Christian duty. However, love is not a chore. It is an emotion filled with sincerity and compassion, which often causes empathy in order to relate to others. If you aren't sure how to properly love, use Christ as an example. Think on how God continues to forgive, help, and strengthen you. Think on the sacrifice of His son, Jesus, and how it cost Him pain and life to provide an opportunity of new life for you. If nothing else, think of how much you may have longed for someone to sincerely relate or understand you. God can show you how to show love, on different levels, for each person in your life. However, we must be willing to learn and seek positivity. If you focus on negativity or allow bad things in your life, then there will be no room for good...let alone love. To miss out on showing love is to miss out on being able to sow and set up sincerity for yourself. What you sow is what you will reap.
