Love Is Blindness to Everything But Kindness

Love is blindness,
To everything but kindness,
So let’s see this come true,
In everything we do.
Love is blindness,
To everything but kindness,
When this is our sole hope,
We have strength to cope.
Love is blindness,
To everything but kindness,
For kindness is the key,
In how to truly see.
Love’s the Higher & Most Excellent Law
Let’s see love come true,
In everything we do.
Abiding to love as if it were a law – and it is, but not in punitive terms – means we exalt it. When we see love come true in all we do – perhaps in one day as a snapshot – we are encouraged by God; we are inspired.
Love is a standard that meets and exceeds all standards. It has no fear and it does not shrink. When we meet love’s standard – and we can’t always – we see and we experience what is most excellent.
Love Bears, Believes, Hopes and Endures
When love is our sole hope,
We have strength to cope.
Coping is about these four things. With love we can bear patiently what would normally infuriate us. With love we believe the things of God – we see a bigger perspective of reality and we are sufficiently open-minded. With love, hope thrives. With love, endurance has both reason and poise.
Love Never Ends / Love Never Fails
Kindness is the key,
In how to truly see.
When we finally see that unconditional kindness is our license to life – that kindness, all on its meek own, is the solitary thing that sustains our love – then we see why love never ends; why love never fails.
If we do not give up on love – loving those who even might despise us, with hardly a mention of those who have hurt us – we will see this truth in the fullness of its eternal glory. And kindness is how we do this love; by being incessantly kind – no matter what.
***
Who points us to love other than the Saviour – our wonderful Lord Jesus Christ? Such eternal kindness he has poured out through the Father’s grace on the cross; and, to share his Holy Spirit with us.
Now, there is also tough love: a real love. A topic for another article. But even tough love can be seen as kindness. Even tough love has a kind intent; for the betterment of someone though a growth opportunity.
