In a multi-level well, the water flows from one basin into another. Once a bowl has filled, the water spills over into the one underneath. The law of gravity does not allow the water to flow from bottom to top.
When God formed man, he laid principles in us too. To truly love others, it is important that we know that we are loved by God. Filled with His love, we can truly give ourselves to others. The relationship with God is a prerequisite and always comes first. The people around me will quickly notice whether my love is overflowing or superficial.
Through God’s Word and prayer, you will be filled again and again. How do you cultivate the exchange with your Creator?
“Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.”1 John 4:11
Do you let God love you?
Weekly verse: 1 John 4:7-21
