Welcome back to Timeout Tuesday – an opportunity to right your thoughts and clear your perspective.
Do you know someone who loves much? Someone who loves well?
What do you attribute their love to? What’s the root of their love?
I’ve been pondering these questions myself and this is what I’ve come up with. See if you agree and, please, share your perspective.
First I should ask, what is it to love well?
Personally, I’ve come to understand love as sacrificial; as having no ulterior motive, no ambition beyond giving.
To love well is challenging. Even as I aim to selflessly love my children, I sometimes find an ulterior motive. I find myself thinking of the years ahead, hoping that today’s seeds of affirmation and affection blossom into an abiding love relationship.
