for being a short word, the word love can be used in so many ways. I’ve attempted to define love as a sacrifice, [see L-O-V-E (1)], this time: LOVE is a choice! it illustrates commitment. it demonstrates stick-to-it-tiveness to a promise within your heart. it has nothing to do with the recipient but everything to do with the character of the giver! if you’re ever finding it tough to stay loyal to a commitment you’ve made, choose to:
love is an action, to be chosen, not felt.
Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.
1 John 4:11-12 NLT
