The Tough Part of Unconditional Love

The more you love someone the tougher it can get.

For example, my heart hurts for loving parents who try to stay connected with their children when they know their children are involved in things that are clearly harmful and even morally wrong.

The same goes for the loving pastor and friend. 

But something we must never forget is that loving someone unconditionally does not mean that we unconditionally celebrate their choices. 

Winning at life & eternity comes with rules. Love teaches those rules and celebrates winning, not breaking the rules.

Bottom line, unconditional love is seldom about warm fuzzies, being liked, or the absence of hard realities, absolute truth, and discipline.    

The ONE THING for today: Unconditional love does not mean you unconditionally celebrate poor choices.  Matter of fact, true love can’t.
