Hello everyone, remember I said in the previous article that MLT will be moving to a greater height this year. We are going to be touching lives in different areas.
I read an article the other day, about the son of a billionaire who fell in love with a lady. Well, such stories aren’t meant to get any second glances these days right? Yeah. But, since the title of the article actually read, “Billionaire son, Adam, found love in this pretty woman. Does anybody know who she is?” That question must have had every reader studying the face of the woman the same way scientists study specimen. When did having a high social, or financial status become a prerequisite for falling in love?
Once upon a time, I fell in love with a great guy and he felt the same way about me too. He invited me to his family’s party. It was a grand event. I was introduced to quite a number of BIG NAMES, including his parents. During these introductions, I was frequently asked who my parents were and their occupations and I told them the same thing repeatedly, just like a broken record. I told them, with self confidence and pride, who my parents are and what they do. I had a quiet, good time at the party. Anyway, not until a few days later that I got to know we couldn’t work out anymore, because they did not acknowledge my great parents. It hurt so bad.
If God actually looked at how low we are compared to His standards, well, I guess the scripture would have been written as: while we were yet sinners, Christ refused to die for us. We would all have missed on His salvation. One thing I know about real love is that it doesn’t care about where you are coming from or what you are, it just happens to you! If everyone loved because of financial status or name, then, who would love the orphans, the homeless, and less privileged? The bible says, “love your neighbour as yourself.” There is no condition of position or class attached to it.
I would appreciate your opinion on this matter too. The question is: should love come with a prerequisite?
