The Overflow of Joy in God

I appreciate this quote from John Piper - "Love is the overflow of joy in God, which gladly meets the needs of others." Love is not about what we "get" - it is about what we "give" - what we "gladly give".

Clearly when it comes to our children and grandchildren, we gladly give - because we love them.

If they are able to remember how much we love them, and how we told them and lived like people who believe God loves them even more, then we will have done what we need to do. There many be many goals we have for our lives, but leaving children and grandchildren with the absolute assurance of our love - and more importantly - of God's love for them, are the things which matter the most.

So love - with "the overflow of joy in God, which gladly meets the needs of others."
