Am I love?
I heard this question in passing on the radio the other day. Read this part carefully. It was not, "Am I loved" but rather, "Am I Love?"
I have to confess that I knew the answer to the question immediately.
No. In that moment, I was not love.
That morning my husband sent me a quick reminder text. As I was typing my smart aleck response, I could hear the still small voice telling me that a simple "OK" was the appropriate response.
I ignored the voice.
My remark was not taken well and it began our day together with tension rather than peace.
Was my remark worth it? No.
Did my hubby feel loved? No.
Could I say, "yes, I am love?" No.
I have been chewing on this mentally for a day or two now. "Am I love..."
The truth is that only Jesus personifies love. But if I love Him shouldn't I be a channel for love?
Jesus said, they would know that we are His disciples by our love.
How about you. If you asked everyone in your life, "Am I love?" How would they answer you?
I am challenged by this today!
