Have any of you ever just sat and thought to yourself, what is love really? Is it when you think someone is the most beautiful person you’ve ever seen? or is it when you are constantly wanting to kiss and hug and be hanging all over that person? I don’t think so.

Love isn’t an emotion or even a noun. It’s a verb. Better defined as giving. As putting someone else’s needs above your own.  Love is also a choice, not a fall. You don’t fall in or out, you choose to or not to.

When is the last time you did something for the one you love just because you wanted to? When is the last time you offered to change the babies diaper or clean the dishes because you can see that the one you care for may be stressed or just could use a break.

Maybe they are perfectly content and happy, maybe they aren’t stressed, so does that mean you don’t even bother to help them out around the house? The answer is no. You should see the hard work your significant other does and choose to help them out or even take them out for a break.

When you find yourself wanting to do things just out of the kindness of your heart and not want anything in return, it is then that you know the true meaning of love.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8a Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up.It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful. It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth.It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.Love never ends.
