30 Dec What Is Love
What Is Love?
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
“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.”
What is love? This is probably one of the biggest unanswered questions in the world. People all over have often tried to come up with their own definitions of love but to no avail. Sometimes it seems like we would like to make love out to be what fits according to our own personal lives, all the while not realizing that we’re being selfish to those around us. It would be wise to understand that the world doesn’t revolve around one individual and what is best for you may not be best for the next person.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 delivers a clear message of what love should feel like. It’s the perfect definition of love that relates to your soul instead of the materialistic and worldly needs that our flesh often yearns for.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where many people believe that love is painful and sometimes it has to hurt. Are you a believer of God’s word? If you are, then you should never forget that in the scripture it says that love is patient, kind and a protector. Anything that is protecting you would never inflict harm upon you. The enemy wants us to believe that love is supposed hurt. He wants to manipulate us into thinking that lying, cheating and abusive relationships are normal. If you have found yourself in a relationship that doesn’t model the meaning of love in the scripture, do yourself a favor and break free of that toxic energy. The sooner you leave, the better off you’ll be.
Love is our saving grace. It’s the one place we should be able to call a peaceful home. The quicker we let go of those hateful relationships that falsely claim to be love, the faster we can receive the true love that God has created for each and every one of us.
