Love is a decision we make

Without making decisions nothing happens. You made a decision to get out of bed this morning, to make breakfast, to go to work – all decisions. And, as true Christian love is the foundation of the Christian life, then similarly, nothing will happen without a decision to love. Any kind of interaction with people will entail making a conscious decision to love them, to view them the right way, to extend grace and mercy to them and to desire that they know the Lord Jesus. I realize this is very simple, but don’t we easily forget that love is first a decision we make? We can tend to think that love is merely an emotion which comes and goes.
