Love

Love

The true definition of love states: 

“ A noun, a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. A feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend. sexual passion or desire.”

 

I believe love is permanent and it lasts longer beyond death. Love is not only a powerful emotion, but it does rise above all. Giving is part of love, we give to the ones we love, but it’s also important to give to others and see beyond ourselves.  “Love thy neighbor as thyself.”

Corinthians: 13:4-8

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, 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. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
