What it Really Means to ‘Love’

(Love) always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. - 1 Corinthians 13:7

There are perhaps no words in the English language that can shake you to the core more than the words, “I don’t love you anymore.” It’s sad to think how many marriages have ended with those words, and how many families have been torn apart by that simple sentence.

But when we think about love, we come up short if we define it any way other than how God defines it. God-like love isn’t simply a fleeting feeling or a momentary notion. It’s a commitment with a beginning and no end. Real love never stops.

The world thinks it knows what love is. In fact, as we get ready to celebrate love this week, it should cause us to reflect on how to recognize the difference between the world’s “love” and the love God shows us.

Christ chose to love us. That love has never stopped, and it never will. So let’s never take lightly this all-important action of love that we show to God and others. Make the commitment to love the Lord and people not just today, but from this point forward!

Prayer Challenge

Ask God expose where you’ve acquiesced to the world’s definition of love. Pray He’d give you a fresh perspective on how to love Him and others with a God-like love.

Questions for Thought

Can you think of a time when you were tempted to stop loving someone?

How might reflecting on God’s love for you strengthen your resolve and ability to show love in hard situations?
