But Have I Loved?
by louis gander  
9/25/2011 / Writing

I've read a Book that was read by millions.
I've seen a painting that was seen by millions.
I've sung a hymn that was sung my millions.

But have I LOVED?

For with LOVE comes sacrifice,
and with sacrifice comes much sorrow,
and with much sorrow comes many tears,
and with many tears comes vast emptiness,
and with vast emptiness comes more agony,
and with more agony comes horrid pain,
and with horrid pain comes suffering,
and with suffering comes a cross.
A cross that PROVES love.

PROOF through an only begotten Son -
who sacrificed,
who forgave,
who died,
who rose again,
who loves me more than ever,
who wants me to experience just one short inch in His sandals,
and take one faint breath on my humble cross,
so that I may also learn how to love.

I've not authored a book that was read by millions.
I've not painted a picture that was seen by millions.
I've not arranged a hymn that was sung my millions.



1 Corinthians 13:13 (NASB)
"But now faith, hope, love, abide these three;
but the greatest of these is love."
