God can tell when our love for Him isn’t real.
So, let me say this first…
Before you judge someone else’s love, make sure you are truly reciprocating God’s love for you. Whenever someone else’s love doesn’t measure up to your expectations, ask yourself does yours measure up to God’s.
We must always be patient with one another and remember the fact that when your spouse, your child, your parent, your friend your church member, your Pastor…or when YOU fall short, it doesn’t mean that there is no love. It just means that our love isn’t perfect.
And, pray for the discernment to know when love isn’t genuine. Even when it’s not, it does not free us from the responsibility to make sure ours is. That’s what makes it love.
Matthew 15:8 (NKJV)
8 ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
And[a] honor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
