John Lennon was right when he said " all you need is love". From the poor to the rich, the young to the old, and all the people in between, love is the only thing that truly satisfies the longings of the heart. I believe we are here, not only to be loved, but also to love selflessly. The only problem is that we are not very good at it on our own. The reality is simple. Love has a source. God Himself IS LOVE. God doesn't just have love He encompasses love, and we were created to receive and share His love. If we are ever going to truly love we must first be loved. The Bible says we love God because He first loved us. The love we so desperately need to receive and share starts and ends with God
"In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins."
1 John 4:10
