Reflection: The Fire of Love The two drivers of all stories, songs and poems are love and death. And our passage tells us that love is the stronger of the two. This somewhat unexpected Bible book highlights without any sense of embarrassment the intense and overwhelming nature of romantic love. It is realistic: this kind of love can’t be forced back in the bottle. The intensity of romantic love is what God feels for us: no wonder he is jealous for us and never lets us go. And his love will last beyond our graves: it
is stronger than death. The resurrection of Jesus has shown us that.
Question: How careful are you about love? Do you accept its power? Do you accept that God loves you with this intensity?
Prayer: Thank you, Lord God, for your unquenchable love for me. Help me to consider love with the same seriousness that you do. Amen.
