Love Is A Gift

Love is a gift...
   more precious than all the treasures
      this earth can hold.
You cannot buy it.
   It must be given, freely,
      to be worth be real.
False love looks good on the outside.
   You really can't tell that it's false love
   just by looking at it.
      It looks real until you open it up.
False love is an empty box;
   Real love is a gift full of tender mercies,
      forgiveness, kindness, generosity,
         and eternal life.

When you find Jesus,
you will find real love...
and new life.
