What Is LOVE?
Frankly speaking, LOVE is the most misused and abused word. Why? Just look in our society today, thanks to the mass media, it gave a very, very shallow definition of love: From music, TV, movies, social networking sites, etc. But the despising fact that we need to face is, others defined love as sex.
As a result, a lot of people, especially the youth like me, getting misled by the false definition of love. And they end up heartbroken, bitter, used, and mistreated.
The question that we need to face is this: WHAT IS THE TRUE MEANING OF LOVE?
Where can we find the answer? We can find it to the book where you can find all the truth that you need: The Bible. It was written there…
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
– 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
It was clearly written, love is not the one that we heard in music, it’s not the one that we saw in the movies and TV, it’s not about the pick-up lines, and it will never be about sex.
And for you to feel the TRUE LOVE, go back on how God demonstrated His ultimate love:
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
– Romans 5:8
That’s how God loved you. Why settle to the shallow definition of love? GOD LOVES YOU, LIVE WITH IT!!
God is love.
– 1 John 4:16
