The Labor of Love is Not a Duty

It is not something we have to do. It is not even something we ought to do. Loving God as we worship can never be done because we know we ought to do it. Now sometimes we need to fake it until we make it. Sometimes we need to do it even if we don't feel like it. Feelings follow action. We do something and then we suddenly realize that we’ve been enjoying it.

Instead we ought to checking ourselves and if we seem not to feel like loving God or worshipping or even loving someone else, then we need to figure out with why. And sometimes this means doing what we need to do even if we don't "feel" like it.

I suspect that all of us are similar in that our feelings come and go. There is so much dependent on how we feel at the moment: our circumstances, our drive here, what we have eaten or not eaten, meds, how work went, how our golf game went, how the Browns or Steelers did, and even the time of the month (and that is not just for women either).
