Conditional Love by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/21/11

“My husband and I do everything together.”

“Okay, I love her, but . . . it’s like she wants me to give her every single waking moment!”

“We have so much fun.”

“It’s driving me crazy!”

“We just love doing everything together.”

“It’s like—back off!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Lust can take different forms. There’s the obvious sexual sense. But there’s also a form of lust that says, “I love you because of how you make me feel. You fill up a need in my life.” It’s really conditional love.

This kind of love will last as long as the other person decides he wants to keep filling you up. But the problem is that the hole in your heart is so big that no one but God can truly fill it.

When we go to God for love, we’ll never be disappointed. He can fill us up and give us the ability to be givers to other people—no matter what they do, or don’t do, for us. That’s true love.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
