Motivated by Love By Brenda Drake

Love is the best gift we have been given and it is the best gift we can give.

 

Motivated by Love

Obligation motivates – guilt does too
But the best motivation for good is love in you
When you see a need in another’s life
And you know you have ability to make their burden light
If you grudgingly do it with a halting step
The good deed may be appreciated but its motivation isn’t the best
Love rushes in to help without much thought sometimes
You are reaching out to help before the solution comes to mind
Love is like the perfume of the rose
It is like deep thought within the word of prose
Its beauty is recognized right away
Healing comes even if you do not know what to say
A listening ear, a silent prayer
A simple card or a loving word shared
When motivated by love the world’s problems still exist
But there harsh reality has been sweetened by motivation such as this

Ephesians 5:2
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
