My thoughts, I welcome yours.
Love is an emotion displayed thru words, actions and thoughts.
If, I believe in Jesus and his words( and I do ), I know two Commands(not a suggestion).... Love God & neighbors, God with all my heart and soul, neighbors as myself.
Love and caring for another is not just taught, it is Learned by example, and a willingness to give to another without regard to self.... The Bible gives us many, many examples in actions, stories, and parables to Learn from.... to me the best example in action, is Jesus.
I have had many ask me " Why doesn't God just plug all this in for me, and not go thru all life's struggles?" -- To Learn Love in truth, one must experience it and Live it, to Learn it..... would God not be deceiving one, if he plugged it all in, and made you to feel you actually Lived and Learned? If you had a robot that you programed to Love you(the best you knew how), would that really make you believe you are Loved? If you had a child(who has free will), grow up... and one day come hug you & say " I Love you, and thank you for all the Lessons you taught me ".. would you feel Loved? If you had a Father who died so that you could Live, would that make you feel Loved?
If the only purpose in Life is to consume for oneself, does that Life really serve any purpose?
In conclusion my purpose is to Live, Learn, and help others along the way....If I Learn my Lessons... I get to go home and thank our heavenly Father.
