love without expectation

I’ve been reading the book, “Bait of Satan” by John Bevere. It’s all about recognizing the pitfall of taking offense to things and people in our life. I’ve seen this as an area of need for me. I’m a relatively emotional person that can be easily offended.

We have to learn to love without expectation. Most the time our love flows out of what we can get from a relationship. If we love with an expectation, we set ourselves up for offensive. More often then not, people are not going to act and react how we expect them to. If we relinquish them from that expectation and love them just because then we’ll be less likely to have our feelings hurt.

I once heard it said, “Love is not an investment, it’s a gift.” Do you recognize this in yourself? Do you cultivate relationships that have high expectation? What are your thoughts?
