The word “Love” is used for almost everything…
“I LOVE pizza”
“I LOVE those shoes”
“I LOVE my boyfriend”
But do you really understand the power that “love” holds?
Let’s take a look at,
1 Corinthians 13:6-7
To see what Love truly means!
“Love Does Not Delight In Evil But Rejoices In The Truth.”
To understand what “Love” is, you must first understand it’s foundation.
Love doesn’t like evil.
In order for Love to grow and maintain, it needs to be protected from evil.
Selfishness is an evil that Love does not respond well too, as Love is actually an act of unselfishness.
In order for Love to be maintained and grow, it needs to be rooted in Truth and that truth is God.
If your love is not founded in God, who is the perfect example of Love, your relationship will struggle.
Love is the glue that holds relationships together. In order for the glue to be able to withstand wear and tear, it must be reapplied daily with Truth. If not evil will break the bond that Love creates.
“It Always Protects, Always Trusts, Always Hopes, Always Perseveres.”
When you love someone, you will do anything for them. You will protect and fight, if needed, for your loved one.
Love is the four letter word for Trust. When you love someone, you trust them and they trust you. Where there is no love, you won’t find trust.
Love gives you hope. Hope that is found in your walk with God as a couple.
Love always perseveres as stands the test of time. With love, no situation or trial can shake your love.
So the next time you use the word “LOVE” understand the power that word and Love the way God Loves You!
