Perfect love?

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.  The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
Wow. Harsh reality.  We are very much in love,  but immediately we know that it is imperfectly.  We’ve been through love. .. we’ve been through incredible loss.  We FEAR. We are not God. He loves perfectly and try as we may, we do not. God shows us His immeasurable love for us and wants us to spill that love over into other people. It’s better to be loved imperfectly than to never have been loved at all.
