The Mystery of Love
I read this following statement, and was deeply touched by it: Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.
What is within an animal that brings about such a love response in man? And how is it that a dog will show such capacity of loyalty and love toward its master? Where did these feelings of love come from?
Paul writes about the fruits of the Spirit and lists them for us. The first one listed is love. This mysterious emotion, feeling or psychological wonder has puzzled mankind over the centuries. Solomon stated that the way of a man and young woman was beyond understanding. The Greeks used a special word for this. They called it eros. This Greek word has been vilified. It is actually quite noble. It’s the love of a man for his woman. It is deeply loyal and even sacrificial. It doesn’t; it wouldn’t look at another woman. For, he loves this woman only with all his being. How can this be explained?
There is only one explanation that comes to mind that enables man and creatures to love. This capacity to love had to be placed within them by their Creator.
John tells us that “God is love.” He wasn’t trying to give an explanation of God, although it tells us a great deal about Him; he was giving us the source of this wonderful thing we call love. It’s a fruit of the Spirit evidently given to all men. Yet, some have far greater capacity for it than others. When love is absent in one’s life that too is evident to all and usually quite dramatically.
May the Lord of heaven and earth grant us this mysterious wonder to be in our lives that we might exhibit it to all. God is gracious, and He will do it.
