Make Love Work
Make Love Work - Song of Solomon
Our culture is in love with the idea of love. We are enamored with the idea of the fairy tale beginning and the fairy tale ending, but we never hear the full story of the in-between. These stories leave us hopeful and hopeless at the same time. Hopeful to reach the end of our stories, but hopeless to get across the chasm between the now and the then.
In the book of Song of Solomon, God gives us the hope to start living out the then right now. He not only gives us the destination, but lays out the roadmap on how to get there. Love is the greatest gift given to us, but like any gift, it will take effort on our part to open it. To make love in this world, we have to know the destination to the fairy tale ending and work to get there.
