And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
1 John 1:4
People often have different views of what love is. Nine-year-old Roger was asked what he thought falling in love was like and commented, “Like an avalanche where you have to run for your life.”
Jan, who was also nine, was asked why two people fall in love, and she said, “No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That’s why perfume and deodorant are so popular.”
“I think you’re supposed to get hit with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn’t supposed to be so painful,” was six-year-old Harlen’s response.
There answers seem a little silly, but everyone probably has a little bit different concept of love. The Bible is the best picture of what true love is. Every page is filled with all kinds of different illustrations to help you see jus how much you mean to God. It is His personal love letter to you. God inspired every verse to show His unfailing love toward us.
As you take time daily to read God’s Word, you will understand and know what true love is.
Lord, thank You that You love me with selfless love. Help me to understand just how much You love me as I read Your Word daily. Open up my understanding to comprehend just how wide, high, and deep is Your love for me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
