The nature of love is not to love what is, but rather the promise of what “is” could be. When we love, there is always an end. We love to be loved back. We love to feel satisfaction. We love for the comfort it provides. But a true love will always be accompanied by fear and sacrifice. To love when there is no promise of love being returned. To love when your paths diverge or when all data available indicates that you shouldn’t. “For God so loved the world…” It’s a theme repeated countless times in all facets of world culture, yet the lesson proves difficult for even the best of us to learn. Love as if there is no consequence but honesty – love even when it seems impossible.
