Lingering Love - A
Soul Snack 130/10 ... Lingering Love - A
Love endows goodwill and grace as the immovable sealant to relationship.
Yet there is a tragic side to a love given and a love engaged. This is realised when love is not returned. The giver is ignored and selfishness has survived.
Such tragedy is multiplied when a lover continues to give, but the eager recipient continues to echo rejection as it suits them.
Searing the giver is a love that was once desired, but is now discarded upon the mine-field of another's indulgence or petulance.
Yet the very nature of love ensures it will continue to be given, for that is the default position of love. Its tragedy is that it is not received.
Isn't this the exact manner that God deals with us each day while we still choose to sin?
God's love is unconditional, but surely too is its reception.
