DO YOU LOVE THE PERSON OR THE CHARACTERISTIC?

love-cross
Many times we actually love a characteristic or quality in someone rather than the person themselves. The question I want to ask you today is this; Do you really love the person or just the personality or what the person can do for you? DO YOU REALLY LOVE PEOPLE? I mean enough to serve them, meet them, spend time with them and really enjoy their presence.
 
 Be honest with yourself. Discern the DOMINANT BASIS OF ATTRACTION. If the person in your life right now is a SPIRITUAL STRENGTH or simply a person who can help you climb socially. Are you feeding physical desires?  if you do this it will be very costly in your life.
 
You see, “Loneliness is not a loss of affection but the loss of direction.”
 
1. TRUE LOVE DOESN’T FEAR. Fear is a distrust and a lack of confidence.
 
2. TRUE LOVE WANTS TO GIVE. Love want’s to contribute to another person’s needs. It is an investment in time, effort, and even finances. Giving to someone should bring JOY to your life.
 
3. TRUE LOVE ANTICIPATES ANOTHER’S NEEDS. Jesus proved this with Zacchaeus and the Samaritan woman at the well:
Matt 6: 32-33   “For your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things, but seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be given to you as well.”
 
Ask yourself this question, DO I REALLY LOVE PEOPLE?
