LOVE IS ….
Love is a concept bigger than any concert you could ever imagine on the face of the earth. It might not be as loud as a concert but it is stronger than it. Love is divine, spiritual and strong. In the Bible the book of Solomon (also known as Songs of Solomon) 8:6 said ……..for love is as strong as death meaning love has a strong bond, he went on to say Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it, the message here is simply, love knows no hindrances or obstacles. I said earlier that love is spiritual the reason being love is the only thing that hits you and what you feel next becomes magical, moments like these leave you bursting with happiness and joy that nothing else matters, because you are in love with the person your heart truly wants.
Most times young people wonder what makes the grand ma’s and the grand pa’s stay together, married for over 65 years and counting, while with young couples today divorce seems as natural as breathing, and the rates are climbing every day, the old folks will say Trust, Respect, and Endurance are the keys to a long lasting relationship. God made mention of LOVE in His commandment when He said Thou shalt LOVE the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind, and with thy whole strength and Thou shalt LOVE thy neighbor as thyself these are His two greatest commandments and 1 Corinthians 13:1 – 10 says
1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful;
5 it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
6 it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.
7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
9 For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect;
10 but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.
The word perfect depicted here is love. Love is free, love is life, love is gentle, love is priceless and love is Beautiful.
