We can all agree that love is big, beautiful, important, life changing, but when it comes to loving in the way that Jesus loves us, and calls us to love, we don’t all agree how. We all have a measure of how we love people, a specific standard for who we will give our love to, and how much, but at some point we all fall short of our own standard of love, and at some point we will question the love God has for us too. How can we begin to truly understand love, and the measure of love we are supposed to give?
