There is love and then there is extravagant love. My Father loves me extravagantly. I should love the same way.

He isn’t reserved and holding back. Not at all. He sees me from afar and comes running. When I ran from Him he watched everyday waiting for me to return.

On seeing me a long way off, He came running for me. His heart was pounding. He embraced me. He kissed me. He brought me clean clothes, the best He has. He put His ring on my finger; the family ring He has been saving for a special time. He prepared an amazing feast for me. We celebrated. I was lost but He never stopped loving.

God’s goal for us is to love extravagantly. He wants us to give our all and be passionate. He doesn’t want us to hold back at all.

May I love like that!!! May I love extravagantly!!

But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly,  love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
