Not an option

After I John 4:7-12

Not an option
not a choice
not a suggestion
not a question or debate.
A command: love
one another because
you can’t help it when
the love of him is within,
because once accepted and
contained it overflows, spilling
like a rising river flowing
from its banks. The love
within comes from without
and we can’t help but pour
that love on one another.
The love spills,
