I could remember many years ago, there was a song on love. I really can’t remember what song it was. What I can remember of the song though, was that the writer was trying to find out what is love. A local radio announcer had a competition one day with this song playing in the background trying to find out what is love and the one that got closest won a prize, whatever that was…I can’t really remember what the prize was right now but that’s not really important for the point I want to bring across.
After this competition on the radio, the thought always stuck to me. It secretly “bothered” me. What is love? What is love? Every so often it would go off in my head in this fashion. I guess that I was to go and search deep what love is.
Quite a few years later, it was either during my devotions or listening to a preacher I got an abrupt revelation of what love is. This was so crazy that it always stayed with me especially being convinced of the fact that many people still are on a quest for love and another group uses the word love so lightly. The answer to the million dollar question is right in the book. I want to believe that you would understand by now that I’m talking about the bible.
The answer lies in I Corinthians 13:4-8 TLB
1Co 13:4 Love is very patient and kind; never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud.1Co 13:5 Never haughty or selfish or rude. Love does not demand its own way. It is not irritable and touchy. It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong. 1Co 13:6 it is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever truth wins out.1Co 13:7 if you love someone you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost. You will always believe in him, always expect the best of him, and always stand your ground in defending him.1Co 13:8 Love never fails…………….
The entire chapter discusses love but the scriptures, which accentuate love, are the above mentioned.
This is the faultless definition of love, if any of this is not functioning in your life for the people you say you love; it simply means that you don’t love them. Love can be confounded by so many emotions, it is farcical. Love is endless, regardless.
This thought is not meant to be derogatory in any way form or shape. This is the season that love is said to be spread most and in all reality it is but I just found it important to explain what love is. It’s centsless giving to the poor and your life is not lined up to the above mentioned scriptures.
This Christmas season let’s all examine our lives and see if we line up, if we don’t it’s a good thing as we still have chance the reposition our lives.
