Love Seed 2 – Agape or Unconditional Love
1 Corinthians 13 reads, “Love keeps no record of wrongs.” Unconditional love is so hard for us in our physical bodies because it is unconditional and therefore doing something without any expectation of getting anything in return. It goes totally against our human nature.
Imagine what your relationships would look like if you practiced unconditional love. Oh, I hear you saying, “I love my wife unconditionally,” or, “I love my husband unconditionally.” Take a moment to think about that. Do you really? Do you keep a record of wrongs like the time they forgot to do something? Do you try to change them? Not accepting them as they are at that time is not unconditional love.
You have expectations, and expectations not discussed and spoken about in love and truth turn into resentments.
Resentments are spiritual poison which permeate every part of our lives, because love actually does affect the way we communicate. And we communicate with a lot of people in our daily lives.
Learning to love unconditionally keeps us out of resentment and does not allow the time we might spend mulling over resentment into our productive time, hopefully communicating through prayer and meditation with the lover of our souls.
“I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer,” is a famous quote from Martin Luther.
