It is said that after food, clothing and shelter “to love and be loved” is our greatest need. With a world full of children growing up in broken homes, being brought up by single parents and with war and natural disasters causing more damage to the fibre of our society the world sits in a precarious place where love is a difficult commodity to find.
Love has many counterfeits, but each one leads to nowhere. Where is love? So often when it is found it is fragile and held together with control, manipulation and abuse. Our need to love is so great that eventually we will accept any attention even abuse. Why does the abused wife will go back into the relationship with her abusive husband? She is so desperate for attention that the negative attention of the abuser is better to than no attention at all.
Where in all this confusion do we find true love? A love that is unconditional, a love that is not dependant on what we have done? A love that is always there, always willing to receive us with open arms?
