"The secret to love: Have you ever noticed that when you "fall in love" for the short time when you are ‘swept-away’ the one toward whom your affection is directed can do no wrong? Your judgement of them is blind, you see only beauty, and you feel like you’re in heaven… Maybe it’s a beautiful gift from our Father, a slice of heaven hard wired into us as a reminder. Maybe its the closest thing to heaven we can feel in these bodies.

Some trivialize this state and call it “infatuation” as if those first feelings are substandard to “real love.”

What if we have it backwards? What if during that early non-judgmental period we are have a glimpse of what following Jesus teaching not to judge really is like? What if that’s how God feels about you? Or try this: Imagine falling in love with everyone you meet… I mean, really… seeing them beyond all judgement. You would be one happy camper, wouldn’t you? I’m not talking about romance as such, but crazy, can do no wrong affection. Perhaps the kingdom of heaven among us is such a place, here and now.

Who here wants to fall in love over and over and over and forever? Who here wants to take exception? Give love.” - Ted Dekker
