THE DOMINATION OF LOVE
It was early morning before breakfast when a youngster walks onto a newly cleaned floor with muddy feet, hands behind his back. Just as mother, who stayed up last night to clean was about to get angry the boy brings his hands from behind his back with a bunch of wildflowers he just picked, saying “It’s your birthday, Mommy, Happy Birthday!” Now, how many mothers would say “What’s the big idea tracking dirt onto my clean floor!” Not many. It would be more like “Thank you for remembering that, sweetheart,” and then CARRY him out of the room! That’s what perfect love is all about. God isn’t looking down saying “Ah-ha, a bit of mud on the shoe there I see!” No, God’s love dominates us — sure we make mistakes, but does it really matter, if we’re dominated by the love of God? Told by Dr. Donald English, British Methodist Pastor and scholar.
