"Wherever you find love is your family." Dr Fenojo
16 Better is a little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and turmoil with it. 17 Better is a dish of vegetables where love is than a fattened ox served with hatred. Proverbs 15: 16 - 17
The family is a place where love is found.
Basically, individual needs love and seek for love, especially when the immediate family couldn't render it. People associate in a group where they feel welcomed, belong or cared for. This explains why some people join groups, clubs, gangs etc to feel the sense of belongings in the society.
Whether intentionally or not, we all need peace and love. We all seek for love.
When we seek God, we find love. In reciprocal, we love other people because of God in us. Another reason we love unconditionally is because we have also experienced love.
Human being by nature are selfish. We tend to 'love' others with intent of something in return. In fact, the human love is 'selfish' while divine family love is 'selfless', 'other-full'.
Family love its about helping others to be what God wants for them. Its the love without expecting repay.
And your reward, my reward of loving others unconditionally is in God. Read story of 'The Good Samaritan' in Luke 10 verses 25- 37.
A family unit without true love cannot fulfil the purpose of God.
Also, a family without love will be slowed down. Love help us to keep unity. Love help us to maintain peace by forgiving one another in the family.
Every family needs Peace, Unity and Love to function effectiveness and efficiently.
Dear Father, please fill my heart with your love.
Dear Father, please heal my family and help us to love one another.
Father God, please fill our nation with your love. In Jesus Name I prayed. Amen.
