It Is Love
“16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” 1 John 4:16 NASB
It Is Love that replaces selfishness;
It Is Love that inspires us to serve;
It Is Love that binds us together;
It Is Love God desires to observe.
Love is the basis of sharing;
It makes for harmony and peace.
It Is Love that God gifts us—
Every family and nation to increase.
It Is Love that gives life meaning;
There’s satisfaction in serving others.
God instructed us above all,
To love Him and our sisters and brothers.
It Is Love that binds a marriage,
Enabling two opposites to live in harmony;
Seems for us mere humans
To be an impossibility.
It Is Love that makes the workplace
A happier place to be;
Spending much time together,
Requires love to be a reality.
Offences must be curbed,
And a positive attitude maintained;
Team work is essential—
A happy workplace to be framed.
It Is Love that makes a home
A joyful place to dwell.
No arguing or abuse;
Only words of love to tell.
It Is Love that makes the difference
To our lives and wellbeing.
Love cements us together;
A gift from our God all-knowing.
