'Love Is a Choice'
St. Matthias
This I command you: love one another.
- John 15:17
When a house in our neighborhood went up for sale, I admit I wasn't sad to see the occupants move. Although I had never met them, the owner's passion for displaying political signs that opposed issues I supported had left a negative impression. Then one day a neighbor told me the couple was selling because he was ill and could no longer care for the property. Although my feelings toward them hadn't completely changed, I felt a softening in my heart.

A few days later, I happened to see the wife walking their dog, and before I knew it, I was chatting with her and wishing her good luck in their house hunting. As I walked away, I realized once again that love is a choice, not a feeling, and when we allow the Spirit to open our hearts, the feelings follow.
