The world offers a counterfeit to love and many are choosing the counterfeit over the real thing…

Blessings dear friends. Here is a blog post from 2009 that I stumbled upon this week, and I thought I’d re-post it. Blessed New Year to all!

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God.

My child, what could be more beautiful than to love one another with the love of God? I tell you, you cannot imagine such beauty-to see it would blind you to everything but this love unveiled. The world offers a counterfeit to love and many are choosing the counterfeit over the real thing. Real love does not make excuses, but speaks the truth in love. Real love does not tolerate all behavior, but calls each soul to its God-given destiny. Real love does not avoid suffering at all costs, but embraces the cross with salvific heroism. Real love gives all because in God all is yours to give. My child, ponder these things and pray against the counterfeit so that many more may be saved.”

  1. Real love is the Holy Spirit …. The Spirit of Truth.
    Come Holy Spirit and renew all hearts.
    may all here be abundantly blessed every moment of this year.
