The Way of Love

Love according to 1 Corinthians 13:7 "bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." I believe those words and I truly do. But as a human being - afflicted with imperfection has only this to say, "it's easier said than done." I can see a lot of people, including myself, who cannot bear all things, believe all things, hope all things and endure all things when it comes to love. We argue a lot. We criticize each other. We often say hurtful things to each other that we will regret later. Someone said, " the opposite of love is not hate but indifference ." I heard this from my mother and since then it was carved at the four chambers of my heart. Then, I wonder does this mean I can hate people but still love them deep inside of me? So ironic... But then, I realized yes I can because hate can be controlled - can be just psychological defense of people in order to guard them from hurt or pain. Some people even "pretend" to hate just because they don't want their true feelings exposed. Indifference on the other hand is the lack of empathy, the lack of care, devoid of love, devoid of feelings and emotions. Completely empty . I wonder how can anyone ever exist in the world with it in their hearts. So sad... When we go back to how God calls us to love, He said "love our enemies and pray for them" but in the end we see people killing each other and hitting each other. Maybe, I am not guilty of murder or attempted but I know I am guilty of thinking ill of other people as if I have the right to "cast the first stone." Love... No matter what questions we ask in this world and no matter what cycle of life we are in, we will still go back to "love" where everything started. What is your way of love or are you already out of love?
