What would you pay for love? Although it sounds crazy, people try to purchase it every day. Some think it’s found in the things this world offers–stuff you can buy at the mall or the car dealership and take home and admire. Of course, that stuff never loves you back. Some think it’s found in relationships so they try to purchase it by pretending to be people they aren’t so others will “love” them. Again, it’s not real love. Genuine love is always given free of charge. Far more think love is found in the arms of a “lover,” so they sell their purity and often even their souls to purchase it. But if they ever take the time to inspect it closely they realize it’s not real love. When they realize that, they feel more empty and unloved than they ever did before they sought to find it. That kind of love is like one of those wild west towns in the movies–It looks fine from a distance, but it’s only the fronts of buildings–nothing’s real! Friends, real love is always given free of charge. Ask Jesus and He’ll tell you all about it. The price of His love is free to you. He paid for it on the cross.
“Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.” 1 Corinthians 10:24
