The Flawed Logic of Love

Great Music, Tough Theme

“Hot and heavy, pumpkin pie, chocolate candy, Jesus Christ, can’t nothing please me more than you.”   Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Home. – Love the song, however, we’ve gotta find a focus. God, I love my wife, I love apple pie; however, I’m left wanting in this logic.  (and @ladyavance  is offended she’s mentioned in the same sentence with apple pie.)

The Question of Love

“Men love to sex, women sex to love.” – Unknown.  Left wanting.  Either way, we have flawed logic. Love is the answer.

We lead ourselves to emptiness and loss, unless God himself is the center of that love.  We will endure horrid treatment as long as we look to man for the love only God can give.

Principle:  You will fail her/him.  He/she will fail you.

We have two trails of logic:

1. If I have X, this relationship, he/she will fix things.

2. If I’m too afraid of too enamored by love.  My perception is distorted and I settle for less or worse.

Result:  If hope is in X, I will crush X with my expectations.  (No one can hold that weight.)

These are all ways we are left wanting.  In this want, one must react.  You cannot help but react, for this is all your filters say to do.

Our Reaction

We generally have four reactions to this deficit:

1. Blame and move.  We find something new to desire.

2. Blame and beat yourself.  I was wrong.  I am wrong.  I am worthless.

3. Blame the world.  I am mad, depressed or disillusioned.

4. Reorient everything to God.  Find joy in Him.

The Answer

Start today.  Choose #4.  Stop making others our Savior because we have one.

Song of Solomon 7:10 I am my beloved’s, and His desire is for me.
