OUT OF LOVE

A young girl was dating a soldier, she just loved men in uniform. The problem is she was looking at the uniform and not what was inside. After they married she found out he was very strict. Each morning she had a list of chores she had to accomplish through the day. Her husband ended up dying in war and a while later she found another man. This time she looked at what was on the inside and this man was kind and caring. Several years later she was cleaning out the attic and out of a book fell one of those old list's from her first husband. When she saw it, the hair started to stand up on the back of her neck and she thought, "What audacity he had to give me a list of things each day". As she started to read over the list she realized that she was doing all the same things as she did before; but she was doing it because she loved him.

Some people look at God as a tyrant who is giving them a list. Once one falls in love with Him it becomes a pleasure to do the things that please Him.
