A friend was stuck out in the bay in his air boat. A hose came loose and the motor overheated because it lost its water. While there was water all around the motor, there was none to be found in the motor when it needed it. When we lose our love, it is easy to overheat. When we overheat, we can burn up relationships. The best way to keep the love of Christ in our hearts is to have a daily time with our Lord.
James 4:7-10 (NIV)
7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom.
10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
