A Free Love

"God first loved his creation".
Everything about love started from there
His gift of love is the source of our being
In love and for love He made us
Only by loving can we fulfil ourselves as people
God's love is His gift to us;
It is not by our merit or good conduct,
It is a gift we received before we came into existence
His love for us is genuine
True love is always a gift
From God to us, his children,
From our families and friends to us,
Everything about love is charity
Free love is gratis
Many rivers cannot quench love,
Love cannot be drowned by a flood,
The earthquake cannot destroy love
Death itself has no power over true love
Because to believe in God's love
is to live our life as a gift
Jesus Christ himself died to restore true love.
If a man submitted for love all the wealth of his house,
it would be utterly scorned;
Only by love can we enjoy God's mercy,
beauty, goodness and truth, forgiveness.
In us, God planted the seed of love instead of hate,
He watered it with kindness and wisdom
It germinated with hope, counsel and fortitude,
It grows daily in us with knowledge, piety and understanding.
God is the giver of true love
His love urges us to reject sin, pride and anger;
Let us amend our ways and work hard
to rebuild the broken walls of God's love in our lives.
