LOVE is a word that's thrown around a lot. "I love you," we say to our children, spouse, or significant other. "I love you," we say to our parents...maybe our siblings. But what does love mean?
For some it means, "I want sex."
For others it means, "I want whatever I can get from you."
For a few it means, "How can I make your life better?"
I've always thought that St. Paul's definition was unbeatable. It covers all bases, all creeds, all colors, all circumstances. If everyone lived by the true definition of love, there would be no wars, no arguments, no evil. It is so simple that it's difficult. Here is the definition of true love.
LOVE is patient.
LOVE is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
LOVE does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
LOVE NEVER FAILS.
