“Love” from Music Machine ~ God’s love weekly Crew challenge

I saw the title for this week’s Crew challenge and immediately thought of the song “Love” from the album Music Machine. Our girls loved the album; still do, actually.

We enjoy singing along with these songs about the Fruit of the Spirit. The one titled “Love” has the following lyrics.

Love, love, love makes people happy.
Love, love, love makes people free.
Love makes people do the things they know they ought to do.
Love is doing things for you and me.

Love, love, love makes people friendly.
Love, love, love makes people kind.
Love makes people do the things they know they ought to do.
Love is helping those who fall behind.

We need more love. It’s easy to see.
We need God’s love. That’s the way it should be.

Love, love, love makes people thankful.
Love, love, love makes people share.
Love makes people do the things they know they ought to do.
Love is showing others that you care.

We need more love. It’s easy to see.
We need God’s love. That’s the way it should be.

Love, love, love makes people happy.
Love, love love makes people free.
Love makes people do the things they know they ought to do.
Love is doing things for you and me.
Love makes people do the things they know they ought to do.
Love is doing things for you and me.

You can find a recording of this song several places and the Agapeland CDs are still sold many places, found by a simple search.

“Love” starts at 26:32.

God’s love is not something to take lightly and when we are trying to show God’s love, there are so many simple things we can do. Grand gestures are fine but God’s love is really about the small things – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentlesness, self-control. Okay, maybe not that small, but they aren’t the grand gestures that so many people tend to think of when trying to show God’s love to others. Focus on the fruit of the spirit and it will guide well to God’s love and sharing it with others. Makes me consider writing another series on the fruit of the spirit for my girls to do, since the previous one was for a much younger audience than they are now.

Don’t forget to visit the Homeschool Review Crew to read other’s writings on God’s love. There are as many takes on the topic as there are people writing on it so enjoy!

Blessings,
Lori, At Home.
