Hot Air

I have never travelled in a hot air balloon, and since its not a very popular mode of transportation this might be a similarly scenario for most of us. But even though we have never travelled this way, at some point in our lives, we all have floated on the hot air of words. Promises not materialized.

Both sexes have succumbed to this. Individuals coming into our lives with wonderful words that take us up in the clouds above the ground. How wonderful it feels to be loved. Everything is just dandy until one day, the heat flame that causes the balloon to rise dwindles and we start our descent back to the earth to a realization that it was all words. Such a disappointment. Words of love are beautiful, and promises give hope, but I rather to be given the truth that to be fed false love. So my fellow singles be very vigilant in ensuring that you are not encapsulated by words only. But also consider the works that follow. 1 John 3:18 encourages us to “not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” As such, if you don’t want to be fed hot air, don’t do the same to others.
