Then suddenly, one day you wake up and life throws you a curveball. That’s okay, your cushiony life has room for some blows. Your big house needs a new heating and air system. Ouch, it hurts, but you can handle it. A week later, your wife is involved in an accident while she was out with her girlfriends and, unfortunately, she had been drinking a little.
All of my life I always thought that love was love. I knew there was difference between the kind of love we have for one another and God and the kind of passionate love between a woman and man. But I never heard of the classifications of love until this past Sunday, when I was asked if I knew what “Agape” was. Then, with the help of Google, I looked into it and found that there are four forms of love which are Storge, Eros, Philos, and Agape.
Please accept my complete and utmost sympathy for you as you grieve the loss of your beautiful daughter Alyssa. I know that the times will be tough for the family, but the togetherness you all have is very special and you all will gather strength from one another. Like the pastor said at Alyssa’s service, “We are all in this together,” and we will be there for you to help you through this.
Have you ever considered that when you die and get to heaven, you may see someone who you would never expect to be there. It could be someone who died by lethal injection for murdering someone. It could be a child molester or anyone else you would never expect to make it to heaven. What about yourself? Have you lived the kind of life that God wanted you to? You might answer, “Well, I’ve never killed anyone or intentionally hurt anyone.” Is that good enough to get you before the Lord?
