The Records of Love
How does love conquer time?
How is love recorded beyond any man's mortal coil?
A life is captured for the next generation by its legacies.
What I sow in the flesh determines what I gain or lose in my soul, and what I can leave for others.
Different seasons will always lead to the deposits of various legacies.
Each season requires to be sown well, that what remains behind is healthy after that season has closed.
I can find no scales that better weighs a legacy than righteous love.
The greater the love the greater the loss, but also the stronger and purer the legacy.
Righteousness sows to love, for it is love's pure foundation.
The strength of a legacy is recognised by its deposits of love.
Love is not calculated by estate size, or by church pews filled at funerals; but rather photo albums imprinted upon hearts - for these are love's records.
The most enduring and therefore the most important season is entered after all of life's seasons have expired; when the human slapping of a bottom is finally replaced by the divine snatching of breath.
Death is God's retrieval mechanism for those who belong to Him.
When a loved one dies, their death is far more precious to God than even to those who have lost their loved one.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. (Psalm 116:15)
All things in life must end - the good things and the bad things; that each disciple arrives where bad things no longer start and good things no longer end. What they leave are the photo albums of their heart.
Today's Soul Snippet:
God's love is as pure as He is eternal.
