I’m glad I read this scripture today. As simple as it is, it gives me a deeper understanding of love. It gives me a basic understanding of how to truly love.
How many people truly love someone else? According to this scripture, I’d have to say it’s less than you think. Based on their actions, millions of husbands and wives are living in marriages that lack love.
Being rude, is not love.
Getting mad easily, is not love.
Keeping records of each other’s wrongs, is not love.
Lying to each other, is not love.
I can say, “I love you” all day. But true love is within my actions.
And now that this simple scripture has given me a profound understanding, the words, “I love you” have a deeper meaning to me. I will always strive to love in the exact way that this scripture describes.
To my wife, family, and friends…I LOVE YOU!
