If you ask any person to describe love, they will probably describe it in a much different way that you would have. Kids, teens, young adults, middle-aged and the elderly all have their own version of love. But why? Why do we all have different ideas of this one illusive word? Even the Big Guy can't describe it in just one word. Yet, when I read His version, I actually believe that it fits all those different types of love. What is love to you?
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
I Corinthians 13:4-8
