Abandoning love

On a rainy day riding a train in Finland from Keuruu to Helsinki, we stopped and changed direction (as trains sometimes do). As we came into the station I saw this beauty, sitting on a siding, through the window.

Apparently this old locomotive and many of her sisters and cousins from a previous era were gathered and kept in this town that was a mini railway hub. I marvel at these old powerhouses, now largely neglected.

I thought of neglect and then I read this:

“But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.”

‭‭Revelation‬ ‭2:4‬ ‭ESV‬‬

It’s easy, even natural.

“Consider how I love your precepts! Give me life according to your steadfast love. The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:159-160‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Let’s bring the love of God to the foremost place.
