For now, we can only see a dim and blurry picture of things, as when we stare into polished metal. I realize that everything I know is only part of the big picture. But one day, when Jesus arrives, we will see clearly, face-to-face. In that day, I will fully know just as I have been wholly known by God. – 1 Corinthians 13:12
Till Jesus gets back we will not fully know why He asked us to love one another relentlessly. Why receiving His Love was so important! Why it had to overflow!
Till such a time as this arrives, we are to love not just people who love us back; but the Ones who may never. When God says “forgive”, we wouldn’t be able to understand. When He says, “go the extra mile” it would be clueless to what lies ahead. When God says, “trust” it may never make sense. But, there are parts of the Big Picture. Unless these are enacted, we may never be able to be see His Glory ahead.
