Love

I am a fan of Stardust and i happened to see this phrase on Daniel’s blog so here i am copying this.

from the motion picture STARDUST :
My heart… It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it’s trying to escape because it doesn’t belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I’d wish for nothing in exchange – no fits. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine

There can be many quotes about what love is. Many people will know how to answer when being asked what is ‘love’ to them. Yet, most never ever tasted true love in their lifetimes. Even for my parents, i can say that even after being married for so many years, they still do not know what is true love. Or maybe mine definition of love is beyond this world. Many things which are of values are lost as the world progresses. Nowadays relationship to people maybe just a tool for them to attain some goals that they have. Yes, it may seen a crude way of describing it, nevertheless it is so true in this world that we are living in now. There is no longer ground for moral values in people’s hearts. This is why love has lost it’s meaning. When values such as justice, honesty, kindness, purity and others are losing their values in this society. How can the greatest, love, still remains as what it was to be? Couples who can speak words of honey to one another and say ‘i love you’ and the next moment they break because of a small reason. Is this how love is to them? So much so that it is smaller than that reason. Or did they truly love each other in the first place? Last time i used to think that the greatest act that you can for the person you love is to die in place of the one you love. As i mature, now i see love in a different way. To truly love a person is to help the person to be the best he/she can be even it will cost your life. 

When Jesus died on the cross for me, it is not just by exchanging His life for mine. It is not just ensuring that i can be in heaven with Him. It is not just breaking the bonds and curses that sins have over me. It was to help me to be the best i can be, as who He has meant for me. Without Him, i can never break the bonds of sins and be the best of who i can be.
