Love will enable us to appreciate our brothers and sisters in the Lord, and, of course, our family and others around us.
Love is taking the initiative to build up and meet the needs of others without expecting anything in return.
Love desires to seek and apply what God has to say. It also runs the full spectrum from romanticism and the quest for personal satisfaction, to God, and the meaning of life. And, when you have the wrong idea and definition of love, it will adversely impose on all those areas in your life. What love is not is as important as what love is!
The opposite is Hate, Lust, and Disgust. It covers the areas from disliking people who are different to deliberately seeking malice and destruction of what the Lord has for us!Not having real love will leave you empty and alone. Lust is not just the opposite it is the counterfeit!
(John 13:1; 15:13; 1 Corinthians 13:3; Galatians 5:22-23; 1 John)
