How Man Views Love (A Poem)
Man's Perception Of Love
A mother says I love you,
BUT, your room better be tidy and bed better be made.
A dad says I love you,
WHEN, you're good and get good grades.
A sister says I love you,
IF, you play teaparty with me.
A friend says I love you,
WHAT, can you do for me.
A man tells a woman I love you, I love how sexy you look,
BUT, I'll love you even more, IF, you know how to cook.
A woman tells a man I love you,
BUT, more for what you can give. You're handsome, you're smart,
BUT, we need money to live.
A co-worker will love you,
IF, you help them with their work,
BUT, work on your own, and you're considered a jerk.
Conditional love is how we've learned how to live.
Unconditional love is the love that God gives.
God will never say I love you "But, If, What, Or, When.
God will simply love you, on that you can depend.
As finite humans we place values,restrictions and conditions upon the love that we sharewith other humans. Thank goodness God is capable of loving us regardlessly, and totally unconditionally, without any reservations.
