love triangle

That Love is all there is
Is all we know of Love.
- Emily Dickinson

I have struggled to get my arms around this thing called “love”, but lately I am becoming more convinced that there are three parts to it. That is, to follow in the footsteps of Christ you need to experience love in three ways:

Accept. Let God love. Recognize that God loves you. Feel that love.
Reciprocate. Love God back. Do what pleases Him most.
Share. Help others feel God’s love. Love others. Please others.

I need to spend some more time thinking about this… but if you have any thoughts, links, directions or resources you want to share on this topic, let us know.

i think that the three things that you mention about love is part of what love is. God is Love, so i think that it is a bigger and more powerful thing than we know or can imagine. here in these three parts...Love is always moving... always flowing...not someting that is still or can be held onto.

it would be good to read more of your continuing thoughts on this.
