Time to Love

A time to love… Ecc. 3:8 NLT

Ever wonder why so many songs have been written around the theme of, ”Time” and “Love”?    Perhaps its because, LOVE is best spelt, T-I-M-E!   

TIME is LIFE!   Each one of us has only so much Time!    Love takes time!   Loving will cost you the most valuable asset you have… TIME!   

The Bible says, "No greater love has anyone than this… that he would lay down his TIME [life] for another”.    How about it?  Do you have enough time to love?

How about shocking your wife by saying, “Honey, I was going to go fishing today, but instead, I’m going to spend time doing whatever you want to do!”  Or, instead of waiting on the kids to say, “Dad, will you play with me?”  Surprise them with, “Kids, will you play with me today?”  Do you have the time to buy some flowers on your way home from work?   Do you have the time just to sit and admire your spouse?   [that’s freaky]  Rub her shoulders?  Ask him about his day?   Go out on a surprise date?   Or say, “Honey will you take me ice fishing with you today…just the two of us?"

OK… I’m gonna stop now...

An old song by Jim Croce goes like this…

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
'Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you.    He ends the song with this...

"But there never seems to be enough time…”   Sad but true!    Will that be the end of your song… “I wanted to, but I just never seemed to find the time”!    Beloved is it time to spend what ever time you have, loving someone else?    There really is a, “Time to Love”!    So, go ahead and love… Take your time!
