Love is an unearthly bird
Now turn on some radio channel, there you will surely sing about love. And they will sing all day, you just listen. And on TV, they tell you about it. No matter what book you take, the magazine is the worn out word "love." And I will tell you this: there is no love on earth, it is not a bird of the earth. It soars too high, and very few people intersect with it.
When an unbeliever tells you about love, it means that he needs something from you. Do you need your body or your living space, or is it just fine with you. But in any case, a person thinks about himself, about his well-being and satisfaction, and love, nevertheless, implies something else.
John, the apostle of love, says that God is love. And if in you there is nothing from God, then there is no love in you, and it cannot be, no matter how hard you might be to prove the opposite. Love, like the Kingdom of Heaven, is given as a reward, and it is achieved through effort.
Why do we, however, always talk about love? Because we are sure that we have it. Love excuses our most dishonest acts. Why did he leave his wife with children? Because he loved another. Well, then, really, everything is holy. If you love, you can podlichat full coil.Where does this come from? Yes, all from him, our evil "friend." He is not capable of loving, and how to distort a high feeling, turn him into a tool of sin - he is right there.
