"We love because He first loved us." Love is an action. A choice. A series of decisions that put someone else before one's self. A gift that a firework show of emotion can follow, but a commitment to proving it to be unconditional even when emotion is absent. .
Love is patient. Love is kind. Love doesn't assume the worst. It considers the heart behind another's actions despite their failures or how often they fall. It suffers. It sacrifices. It forgives. It's proven to be faithful, time and time again. Love is constant, even when it is undeserved or taken for granted. Love is selfless. Love bears all things. Endures all things. .
Love. Never. Fails. .
The world's definition of love is quite different than the scriptural, modeled by Christ's. Love in fact, is impossible without Him. Infatuation, attraction, and momentary fulfillment is defined as love when indeed it is far from it.
But true love is this.... ."God showeth His own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
And with love as great as His, how precious LOVE can be️ - 2 days ago
