So I just started watching the series Merlin, I’m not sure how old it is, but I like it! It is a cute, entertaining show about Merlin and King Arthur’s bond. Merlin is a budding powerful sorcerer and King arthur is a future king. It turns out that their destiny is to help eachother and be life long friends. So in every episode Merlin has to use his magic to save his friend Arthur, who secretly loves Merlin but doesn’t treat him well. The problem is that Merlin gets no credit because the practice of magic is forbidden by Arthur’s father, the king, and anyone caught practicing it is sentenced to death.
I’m like Merlin I’ve decided today. No I don’t practice magic or sorcerery as I fear God and have views on it, but that’s besides the point. Im like him as a Christian is to their fellow humans. How many times do I have to practice love with a proud person and get no credit (except from God). How many times do I receive an annoying smack on the head, being told how dumb I am all the while Im praying for that soul to be blessed and delivered. This is what true love looks like. Yeah it can be upsetting when we are good to a person and get little or no credit for it, but that is the way it has to be as we are to do right as unto God not man. True love loves a person despite themselves or what they’ll get from it. Humans need a reward this is true however we do not act secretly as we may think. God says that what is done in the dark will be brought to the light, and that we should not resort to boastful comparrison but rather we should be satsified that we are doing right and just be pleased with ourselves which is more satisfying than public praise. Thank you for helping me grow in love father. Amen.
