"Love Completes"

What is this little word called love? The word of four letters? "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love".
1 John 4:7-8 (KJ)

Love is an act of kindness to heal, to build and restore the beauty contained in every person's life regardless of who they are, what they have, where they live and why they do what they do. The bible is worning us not to do good only to our friends.For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? ": And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so"?
Matt 5: 45-46 (KJ)

When did you make a specific act that goes above and beyond the ordinary expression and demonstrates an "unconditional LOVE"?Yet, when we open up our hearts, we can see our opportunity to love all things into balance, joy, harmony and peace. We do not need more visions of desperation, fear, doubt and hate, self-inrichment(selfish ambitions) We, require an abundance of love, especially unconditional love, to heal and restore the beauty contained in every moment. This becomes the easier path once we take the first step and begin to share our love.

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

We love him, because he first loved us.
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
1John 4:10-21 (KJ)
