Mishlei Eight: Love

“I will love those who love me, and those who seek me eagerly will find me (Proverbs 8:17).” One of the many things that my mom and I share in common is that we both love easily. It’s the best feeling in the world to love, and by that I don’t just mean being ‘in love’ with someone. That takes time, effort, commitment, and I don’t mean to trivialize it in any way. But beyond lifelong love, there’s also the easy every day loves. In those cases, love it simple pleasures, and excitement, and enthusiasm. It’s loving the people who help us every day, who we work with, who we interact with, regardless of their roles. It doesn’t have to be serious or strong, but I really relate to the loving those who love me idea. If I’m treated well, I respond well, and I love those who show love towards me. I think that’s how all of us feel, and it’s great to see that echoed in this text.
