When we say this little word, we usually even sigh! It has a very great significance, but many people confuse its true meaning.
Pay attention to this verse:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3.16)
Did you manage to understand? True love is not selfish, possessive, does not think in receiving but in Giving, surrendering, respecting—Now that’s love!
You say that you love, but have you sacrificed your own will for that person? For example: the love for your parents, have you shown your true love through your obedience? And for your husband, have you respected his opinion? And how not to mention God … have you shown your love through the practice of His teachings?
Love is much more than a feeling, far deeper than words, because it’s the actions that reveal whether there is love.

This post helped me to examine myself whether I’ve actually shown love through obedience and action rather than show emotional love by showing feelings of love. Love is most definitely action and sacrificing my own will for someone else and I’m going to put that into practice.

as i analyze this post, comparing it with my love life, it seems like not even one of my ex-boyfriends have ever loved me. . . . . And that hurts so much.
