“We Love because He first Loved us” (1 John 3:19)
Unconditional Love learns how to make fondant daisies, researches to find the best icing, cookie dough and cake batter recipes. Unconditional love is unrelenting.
Love practices hospitality whether it is in classroom cupcakes, home grown vegetable baskets, best dishes for homebound friends, a welcome pie for the new neighbor, or a bouquet of zinnias to brighten a hospital room (Romans 12:13).
“Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed” (Romans 12:7-0).
All for free – meaning free of any return expectations. Just wanting to give love shaped like cupcakes and cookies.
“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others” (Phillipians 3:2-4)
Unconditional Love does that without moaning or complaining, with a heart humming and a joyful spirit.
“Let us not lose heart in doing good” (Galatians 6:9a)
Sometimes Unconditional Love is delicious!
