“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love
has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”
Tough love. That’s what I call the above. Laying down our lives for others. I honestly don’t know if I’m able to do the above. Am learning how to love even when it hurts and it’s hard. In fact there are many times when I feel like giving up and I question the fruitfulness of it all.
It’s easy to love when you are loved back. It’s way harder to love when it feels like all you do is being thrown back at you or even worse when it’s not reciprocated. Tough love cannot be described, it can only be felt and I suppose that’s why we are commanded to love.
When it comes to the crunch, love is a decision that needs to be followed through.
