How Deep Is Your Love

Love is a funny feeling that gets inside our heart. It remains with us for a long long while. Sometimes it haunts and daunts us all our days. Sometimes it is so sweet and touching that we want it to go on and on.

Love is the answer to our many problems in the world. But love is the emotion that is hard to embrace and comprehend.

Some of us fall in love because it is a natural human emotion. Almost everyone has a sense of wanting to love and be loved by someone. We want to share what we have. We open up our heart slowly and reveal our little secrets to those we love. We expect the same from our loved ones. Together we create and build our love story. It maybe a quiet affair or it can be very spectacular with many chapters of frustration and emotional highs and lows. But love is always exciting and eventful. It is always passionate and emotional. But, surprising for some, love does not always last forever.

Some of us fall in love because we want to offer someone something good that we have. We want to share what we have with those in needs. Some of us may come with ulterior motives. Others love with a sincere heart. We sacrifice our money and time for charity works. Sometimes we risk contacting contagious diseases or being physically harmed. The efforts of some of us maybe well respected and well received by the communities at large. Nonetheless, there are many of us who carry on our tasks quietly and remain unnoticed and unrecognized all our lives.

Some of us believe there is a season for love. When love is in the air, everyone must celebrate it. And so we celebrate the Valentine Day, Mother Day, Father Day, birthday, etc. Some of us believe love is a quiet affair to be cherished, nurtured and treasured. We quietly taking care of one another's needs, wants, and feelings. Our deep sense of understanding and respect for one another make us realized that there is such a thing as the high standard of love.

And so as we grow in love, we learn to love our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves, just as it was commanded in the Bible.

The funny thing is we never really understood how deep is our love...
