Living A Life Of Unconditional Love 

What is unconditional love?  

Wikipedia defines unconditional love as affection without any limitations or love without conditions. 

Loving someone no matter what their faults are is challenging.  Christianity teaches us to love others in every situation.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Patience now there is a word so misunderstood and misused.   I remember when I was a child my mother was always saying to me “You have no patience! You need to learn patience!”

So confusing as a child.  I always thought she ment I needed to become a doctor to have patients. 

When a situation arises that is out of our control do we handel it the best way possible?  

For example a loved one becomes critically ill, on lifesupport what can a person do?  Nothing! Praying, waiting being patient for the outcome.

Insisting on its own way 

Love sees through all things.  Never putting itself first. Compromising first before giving into another.  

Arguments occur between one another. That’s a given fact.  It’s how we respond during that moment weather in a soft spoken word or a harsh tone will reflect true love.

Releasing Emotions

What’s keeping you from living a life of unconditional love?  

Resentment, anger, hatred, the list goes on.  Find it in yourself to let them go.  Release those emotions, open up your soul, free yourself and you can begin to live a life of unconditional love.

Thought and comment are always welcome.

Gain The Advantage!

  1. Hi Alicia,

    Thanks for reminding us about the need to practice unconditional love. Love is the king of all virtues. It is not an easy thing to cultivate, but it is essential will learned to demonstrate unconditional love. How much we love and care about others is a good yardstick to measure the quality of our character.

  2. Patience with ourself is paramount too. When others anger me, I say Lord You Love them more than me, stand between us, help me react better than my own fleshy thoughts. Amd sometimes I jist react and repent for handling things as men, not as the Lord would choose.

    Great post, loved it !

  3. Your comments about patience made me smile. I had a friend once who told me to quit asking to learn patience. Her thought was that you only need to learn patience in trying times, so asking to learn patience was like asking to have obstacles put in your way.
