The Burden Of Charity

 The Burden Of Charity 


Is love or charity a burden? 

Take this example; the very day you propose to a lady whom you really love, now you have to take a full responsibility as a beloved. 

The responsibility of calls, being in alignment, checking your surroundings that you will maintain a good reputation etc. 

Though maybe you have not yet entered into marriage but you have to do things that shows love to the lady. 

There are at times you have to call your beloved or will be before you will feel alright with and continue with your daily activities. 

It is not a negative burden nor a burden that leads to death but this is affecrional. 

Love carries it own goodly restrictions, love also has it own boundaries that a person who is truely in love cannot break. 


Love is the greatest as it is written in 1Corinthians 13:13

Christ want us to love each other. 

But there is a law that governs love and love is a whole command. 

Though you can give to your beloved or a friend to show love, you can kill yourself as a sacrifice but in all you go act contrary to what love truely is.


1 Corinthians 13:1-3

[1]Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

[2]And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

[3]And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

These things mentioned in the bible are not easy things to be but not knowing someone can do all these things and might not be showing love. Then love goes beyond what we think. 

You can be buying gifts for your will be in many times, or even as couples you can buy things for yourselves but yet still act contrary to love. 

Then we have to know the real qualities of love. 

1 Corinthians 13:4

[4]Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

These are some of the qualities of love and needs not further explanation. Husbands are to love their wives and wives must also do same and here comes what love is. 

You can suffer long yes in relationship. 

You may past through hard times, something you may expecting something very important but you may not see it in the marriage and it takes time and patience to bear all these things. 

Because of barrenness of the woman or impotancy of a man breakups comes and people forget their vows. 

You have to know firstly that love is patient and long suffering. 

Love is kind. 

When you truely love your spouse or will be, then you have to be kind towards your will be. 

Love is practical and kindness is practical. You can be gifting each other, you can be helping each other and raise each other to meet their needs. 

Love Does Not Envy. 

How can you envy whom you claim you really from your heart? 

Love does not envy your property, does not envy your goodly reputation and fame, does not.envy your relationship with your family, does not envy your envy your giving heart.

Love Is Not Proud. 

Being proud on the other shows superiority and you make the relationship complex. You will become so bitter to your spouse or will be and this will likely bring the hands of the devil in the marriage if care is not taken. 

The women should be submissive as the word of the Lord says but it doesn't mean the husband must be proud. 

A good husband loves the wife and does not provoke the wife to sin. 

1 Corinthians 13:5-8

[5]Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

[6]Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

[7]Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

[8]Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

You don't behave awkwardly after the marriage, if you do that you are not showing love and therefore you are sinning. 

You cannot become selfish. 

If the woman came out you or she is one of your ribs then you must love her as your own body. 

All what we have read or seen in 1Corinthians 13 is the qualities of love. One must love each other and it shows you know God or you have seen God.
