So….how’s your love life?

I can remember when I was single, dreading this question from family and friends. Obviously if you have to ask, it’s probably not great. When you’re in love, it shows. Simple as that. These days I have a different perspective of love life. How is your love of life? Are you living this life fully? It can be hard to know for sure, and a full love of life can look very different to different people, but as a follower of Jesus Christ, I must pay attention to the greatest commandment:

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.  Mark 12:30-31

It looks like we are called to nurture three key relationships; with God, with each other and ourselves. When I apply this personally, it means that I need to guard my spiritual, relational and physical health, all three should be a daily priority. Ironically, these are the same three areas that can get the least of me whenever life gets hectic. I am trying to stay more aware of how I spend my time, so I can keep improving my love life!
