John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,..."
God loved and He gave. If you are in love with someone you will give. You will give compliments, you will give your time, you will give affection, you will give your commitment, and you will give all kinds of gifts.
These gifts might be made by you personally or they might be bought. These gifts can be inexpensive or very expensive it doesn't really matter.
Why, because I loved my mom. Just like other sons have loved their moms.
If you are in Love you will Give.
Can you remember when you first fell in love?
So my question was this, "When did you stop giving or Why did you stop giving?"
When you answer either one or both of those two questions you will know why you are not in love with that person any longer.
Some have stopped giving to the one they were married to and started giving to someone else. This union is on its way to an end if it continues down this path.
You can't give gifts to one and be in love with another. The one who receives the gifts is the one you love.
When you stop giving to someone you stop loving them.
John says, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son…."
God gave us a pattern of how to tell others you love them and it is by giving to them.
God loves you and me because His gift is amazing. He continues to give to us exactly what we need.
How can you tell you are in love? You will give gifts to them.
When you are in love you will give. It is up to you what the gift is going to be. (Guys, I wouldn't try giving dandelions to your wife or girlfriend. Just Saying!)
