Love's Total Sum

There are no exceptions to the laws of God.

There are no crop failures in the life of sin. 

...neither can you live an obedient, holy life and it will go wasted. 
Charles Stanley

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Gal. 6:7

We should consider
Love’s total sum
Choice designs
Who we become

We should never
Boldly trod
Under our feet
The laws of God

God is love
And holy too
He is not mocked
By me or you

What we do matters
Actions become
What we should remember
Love’s total sum

Love is not spoken
By words we spew
But Love is proven
By what we do

Does love sometimes feel thankless and unappreciated?

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Gal. 6:9


  1. "...thankless and unappreciated?" More like unnoticed. Did you notice I [fill in the blank]? Does that feel unappreciated? Does unnoticed translate to unappreciated?
    Love perseveres.

  2. Yes! makes me blush to think how often I un-notice God's love-notes to me! This challenged me to notice the love of those around me too. Love perseveres because that's what love cannot do otherwise. Love never fails.

    Thank-you for your thoughts, Linda. something to ponder for sure!
