“Cause all of me loves all of you. Love your curves and all your edges, all your perfect imperfections…”
Probably everyone who hears that song gets that shivery-fuzzy positive feeling (called kilig). And why not? For such profession of devotion to escape his lips even after contemplating his love’s flaws and weaknesses, the songwriter must be at the Everest of his love!
We may not be songwriters, but we sure have our own ‘love songs.’ Playing hide-and-seek with your son after a tiresome day… Staying up late to look after your sick grandmother… Enduring years in a foreign land to provide for your family’s needs… Donating your organ to an ailing brother… Throwing yourself into a burning building to rescue your wife.
That’s how we love. Even after seeing the worst in them, we can still look past our own comforts lest our beloved suffer. And we are but human beings whose capacity to love is limited!
If our limited hearts could love that much, think of how GOD loves—He who sees our holy and sinful hours, our rising and falling but still, exchanged His heavenly throne for a bed of hay, the praises of angels for the angry shouts of His very creation.
A love that accepts beyond our curves, edges and imperfections. A love without terms. A love without end.
Now, hear God’s love song to you and see if you will not have a heart-tugging, tear-inducingfeeling:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
