The Gift Of Love

 
 

The Gift Of Love
By Tom D Blakely
~

Love wants to give itself
To the object it desires.
So if we love ourselves
That’s as far as our love goes.

How immature we are
If we claim we’re born again,
When things we used to love
We still love them just the same.

Love is a giving thing
Let’s not keep it to ourselves.
If we know Christ as Lord
May we do as Jesus says.

Do we love as we claim
Who do we think of the most?
If it’s not Jesus Christ
Our profession will be boast.

Love wants to give itself
To the object it desires.
So if we love ourselves
That’s as far as our love goes!

Jesus said:
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, and with all your mind.
This is the first and great commandment.”
[Matthew 22:37-38]
