What is Love?
Love is not just a romantic concept, love is the ability to care more for someone even more than you care for yourself. To truly love someone you have to be willing and able to put down your life if need be for them, and to do it without a second thought. In life you will do well to find one person that you can truly say that you love enough to give your life for and mean it with all your heart.
Love is not the romantic thunderbolt that you feel the first time you meet or go on a date with someone. It may signal the beginning of an enduring relationship even one that can bring you true love, but in most cases the feeling wears off sooner or later. True love usually sneaks up on someone and before they know it they discover that they have connected with the right person.
Love can be a feeling you have for anyone that you are close to, friend, relative, lover, or even a total stranger in the right circumstances. As mentioned before you have to have feelings strong enough to hold them in higher esteem than you hold yourself.
True love between two people is a shared experience that brings mutual feelings of deep seated respect for each other which is exhibited by each person thinking of the other before they think of themselves. People truly in love go to great ends to make each other happy and comfortable.
Love between two people that have been together over the years is something to behold. This relationship is so deep that neither person needs to say anything to the other but both know the inner feelings of the other without saying a word.
The greatest love of all is the one shared with God. God is waiting for us to share our love with him, and nothing can be better than two people or a family loving each other and God. In order to know the true meaning of love you must first come to terms with your relationship with God. True love starts and ends with God. God wants us to love him but he also wants us to love each other
