Love... Is Overriding
His banner over me is love.
Song of Solomon 2:4 (NASB)
Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens...
Psalm 36:5 (NIV)
May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.
1 Thessalonians 3:12 (NIV)
Pictures have caught me in countless awkward moments. Weird smiles. Closed eyes. Wrong moves. Video is more forgiving. Retakes override our bloopers and blunders.
If God's love is deep, wide, high and all-powerful...
Consider it like a thick coat of pure white paint, totally covering all previous mistakes.
Consider it like a heavenly tsunami, washing away broken structures and old debris.
Consider it like the most comforting embrace, protecting us from enemies and agonies.
Consider it like a pay-it-forward mandate, prompting us toward a greater love for others.
The strength of love overrides all lesser things, and everything is a lesser thing than love.
Therefore, we love.
