If God is so powerful, why does He keep Himself waiting for us to love Him? He can just make us love him, right?
It is because God wants a relationship with us, without forcing us to love Him. For God, “Love is not forcing relationship.” That’s why He gives us freedom to choose and to learn…. Learn to love Him with all our hearts and not by forcing us to love Him.
-inspired by the movie, “The Perfect Stranger” And this was written way way back 2010-2011 (can’t remember the exact date).
And to sum it up in earthly explanation, don’t force anyone to love you. If he/she does not love you, don’t force him/her. Because it is not love if that’s the case — it is selfishness.
Thus, love is freedom.
If you love someone, just try to remember this:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
And always remember, LOVE IS NOT FORCING RELATIONSHIP!
Imagine this: God does not force us to love Him. But we, mere humans, forces someone to love us back. Oh c’mon!
