Love is….

I remember when I was a child they had a cartoon with Love is….  described in humorous ways, but no clearer definition is given to us then the one that Jehovah Gives us.

1 Cor. 13:4 Love is long-suffering and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, does not get puffed up, 5 does not behave indecently, does not look for its own interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury. 6 It does not rejoice over unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth. 7 It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never fails. …..13 … there remain faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Godly love is far different then what Hollywood has sold us to believe love to be.  Love is not a feeling that goes away, it is the actions we choose to do for others. Godly Love is not based on what we get out of a relationship but on what we give to that relationship.  Godly Love takes time and effort. But is far more Real than any Hollywood version of love ever will be.

May we learn to Love others from the God that “is Love”. 1 John 4:7-21.
