What is Love?
     Whether or not you consider yourself a scholar, whether or not you are young and full of romance, whether or not you are older and looking over the years wondering if you would ever find true love. This question has most likely pass through your head sometime in your life. What is Love?  I am a 26 year old male who has been married for just over two years. So to be honest, that is not enough time to be an expert on marriage. Luckily, you don’t have to be an expert on marriage though to understand how God defines love. That is a very good thing because I have a lot to learn still.
     God never said that love was just an emotion that wains and changes through time. In fact, God says that love should be forever, it bears all things and never ends. Love is a choice that requires action. It is key that we don’t forget both aspects. A choice and an Action!
When we wake up and see the friends and family that surround us, we have a choice to love them.  We alone can make the decision if we will be faithful to our spouse or not. Our love should not be based on others action because love endures all things. BUT…. Once we make that choice the next steps are just as important! We need to ask the question “whacha gonna do about it?”
      Take the time and think about that. Think about the people in your life that you love and the people that you should love but don’t. Don’t just wait for one time of the year to show those in your life that you love them. Instead make a choice and do something about it.
      Challenge – read 1 Cor. 13 (yes the whole chapter) and see what you need to do to Love others by God’s definition!
