Love is something we have marveled about since the beginning of time. It has been the subject of countless songs, poems, sonnets and books over the course of history. Hundreds of movies use it as its theme. And, yet, expertise in the subject still seems to evade us. In many ways, we’ve simply “lost that loving feeling.” Spend a few minutes on Twitter or Facebook today, and I’m sure you’ll agree. It’s as if we’ve forgotten what love is, what it isn’t, and how we are supposed to do it. Love is simply another one of those things God created that we have managed to screw up.
What happened? If God is love, we were created in His image to exemplify love to each other, and love is everlasting… just how did we get so far off track? For many of us, we’ve simply lost sight of what the Bible reveals to us about love. The Bible has a lot to say about it, but here are 10 things we can be reminded of about love and how to live in response.
