“…And the best of the three is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13 MSG
To love someone is to place high value on them. "Falling in love with someone is a mental picture that illustrates dethronement of self and the elevation of another".
Love is a great motivator. Love tears down walls. Love is a time grabber. Our investment of time in people is proof of our love. Love is contagious. Love is a lot of different things to all the people on the face of this earth.
Actually, I think it is right up there with money as far as value is concerned with people.
I think there have been more songs written about LOVE than any other topic in the world.
A very important question every person should ask is, “What is it about this person that I am really draws my attention, my attraction? Could it be their looks? Is it their personality? What we have in common? Sometimes what we actually love is a special quality in a person rather than the person. How do we really discern true love?
Let’s admit it; some have accepted less than God’s very best in the “LOVE” category of our life. God has to give to each of us a very special desire and love for a person who excites our desire for commitment.
We know Love does not fear. Fear is lack of confidence and trust and causes overreaction with some people. “There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear…” 1 John 4:18. MSG. Love is missing when fear is present.
We know Love wants to give. “This is how much God loved the world; he gave his Son, his one and only Son…” John 3:16. MSG. Love shows up in us as we desire to contribute to another’s need. Joy will show itself prevalent in our life when we love another.
We know Love anticipates the needs of others. Jesus is the example of this with the Samaritan woman at the well and others in the Gospels. As we sow our love into those around us, expect God to bless you above and beyond anything you can expect or imagine. Being blessed beyond measure is demonstration of God’s love to us when we love one another and the unlovable.
Yet remember, Love is worth is scrutiny. Discern how much others have the capability to receive your love, and then give your love accordingly. Don’t waste your love.
