God's Supermodels

As Christians, we need to remember that God's perfect love is not only for our benefit.
A model wears clothing to attract attention to the designer's creativity. The model displays the designer's work, but the designer's reputation, not the model's, is on the line.
In the same way, as Christians, we model God's love, whether or not we realise it. People watch us, and what they see affects God's reputation for loving His creation. If we claim to follow Christ then wear the world's twisted style of love, we drag the name and character of our Lord in the dirt.
For this reason, we must ask ourselves, "Am I modeling the love of Christ? Do my motivations and actions in this relationship reflect the perfect love God has shown me?"
How would you answer those questions right now?

Keeping a pre-paid heart

He loves her with every fibre in him; yet he is keeping a pre-paid heart.
He eagerly awaits her love to recharge his -- which is at her beck and call.

She says she wants to love him.
To recharge his love.
He acquiesces, and gives her his love.
Then he 'runs' out of love.
His heart is back in pre-paid mode.

He loves her with every fibre in him; yet he is keeping a pre-paid heart.
He eagerly awaits her love to recharge his -- which is at her beck and call.

The OS relationship...

Most of us treat relationships like the way we install software on our computers.
Once they are installed, we don’t care to update them. We feel/think just having them is enough.
It. Is. Not!

Selecting an accounting software (or a spouse)

"A company selecting an accounting software is akin to an individual choosing a spouse. One wants a faithful (accurate) helpmate who grows with him/her (capable of being scaled up). One wants someone he/she can treasure through sickness (financial loss) and in health (profitable growth). One wants the candidate to be capable of intimacy (keep confidences), yet be open to recognising his/her faults (an audit function to find and fix errors). And most importantly, one wants the relationship to be long-lasting without the need for expensive and debilitating upgrades."   ~ Jones (2002)

The first time...

The first time I met you, I felt like knowing you,
The first time I chatted with you, I felt drawn to you,
The first time I visited you, I wanted to be there for you always,
The first time you visited me, our friendship was bonded,
The first time we went on a date, I felt like kissing you,
The first time we kissed, I wanted to saddle you,
The first time we saddled, I knew I wanted to saddle you for the rest of my life;
For the first time, I am in a forbidden, dangerous and Blessed relationship...
