Archives Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Love Like Giants Purpose and Beliefs
The purpose of "Love Like Giants" is to encourage others in doing Christ inspired Love at home, with family, at work and in the community. We accomplish this by doing Love as we are directed by the Holy Spirit, with articles, projects directed at intentionally “doing” love, music, performance and artistic expression, education and training.
We believe that when people earnestly and intentionally seek Love, far reaching and lasting positive change is a natural consequence, both for the practitioners of Love and those around them. With perfect Love, Christ is revealed to the "doer" and every witness to it.

June 1, 2014; Feelings are Not Facts, remembering God is Faithful
God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.-1 Corinthians 1:9
Communication is a complex series of signals that tell us how to behave, and sometimes we misread the signals. In our commitment to doing Love, it is easy to "misread the cues" from God if the feelings we expect do not follow our actions. If we expect to always feel overwhelmed with a sense of Christ's presence, we can become discouraged when we don't get the "signal". No matter what we feel, or do not feel, we must rely on knowing that God is faithful and can be no other way. Being true to His promises is who He is, regardless of how we feel. His direction to "Love thy neighbor" also never changes, whether it is accompanied by an overwhelming awareness of His presence or not. In gratitude, we are committed to doing Love for Loves' sake and know His Love never fails.
April 6, 2014; The Depth of our Sin Points to the Depth of His Grace
In Galations 2:20-21 Paul writes, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, because if righteousness were attained in any other way, Christ died for nothing.”
Sin created a vast divide between us and God, and although we are Christians, we can still forget about Christ sometimes. We think that if we just do more good in the world and become better versions of ourselves it will put God in our debt and make Him like us better. In this thinking, we are looking to be our own savior. It is clear; if good works could fill the space between us and God created by sin, there would have been no reason for Christ. Our attempts to fill that space with religion or “goodness” nullify the gospel.
The argument has been made that forgiveness and grace might cause people to live indulgent, self-serving lives and plan to ask for forgiveness later. Thankfully, belief in Christ changes our preferences and desires as the Holy Spirit comes upon us. Moreover, as we get a glimpse of the depth of our sin, we are taken by the depth of His grace, and in gratitude we respond by imitating Him. This is reason for Agape Love.
