Understanding Great Love

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings
lived... Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others
including Love. 

One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would
sink, so they all repaired their boats and left.  Love was the
only one who stayed. Love wanted to persevere until the last
possible moment.  When the island was almost sinking, Love
decided to ask for help. 

Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat.
Love asked, "Richness, can you take me with you?" 

Richness answered, "No, I can't.  There's a lot of gold and
silver in my boat.  There is no place here for you." 

Love decided to ask Vanity, who was also passing by in a beautiful
vessel.  "Vanity, please help me!" 

"I can't help you, Love.  You are all wet and might damage my
boat," Vanity answered. 

Sadness was close by, so Love asked for help.  "Sadness, can I
go with you?" 

"Oh, Love!  I am so sad, that I really need to be by myself!" 

Then Happiness passed by Love, but she was so happy, that she
did not even hear when Love called out to her! 

Suddenly, there was a voice.  "Come Love, I will take you!"
It was an elder of Love.  Love felt so blessed and overjoyed,
that he even forgot to ask the elder's name.  When they arrived
at dry land, the elder went his own way. 

Love, realizing how much he owed the elder, asked Knowledge,
"Who helped me?" 

"It was Time," Knowledge answered. 

"Time?" asked Love.  "But why did Time help me?" 

Knowledge smiled with deep Wisdom and answered, "Because only
with Time and Wisdom, are you capable of understanding how great
Love is."

I have to add here, that though this story is very true in a
sense, I truly believe that by knowing JESUS, and what He did for
us on the cross, is the best way to truly understand what
"Great Love" is. 

Be awesomely blessed! :)
