“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-6)
What is love? Cliché, I know. But what is it really? Love can sometimes be defined based on what it is, and sometimes can be defined based on what it is not. Sometimes we define love based on what we feel but love has no definite meaning.
What is love? If you ask our generation, some may say love is when a person buys you cute gifts, sends you sweet messages or even someone who gives you butterflies. Isn’t love more than that? Isn’t love more than cute gifts, more than those sweet messages, more than those butterflies?
Some, associate love with romantic relationships but love isn’t just being in a relationship. We don’t need to be in a relationship to experience love. Love, sometimes can be unseen. It can come anytime whether we know it or not. We cannot sometimes see it because it is hidden in words like “Have you eaten?”, “It reminded me of you.”or even “Be careful.”
Bottom line is, love is more than the “I love you”s and it is more than the dates. Love comes even when we don’t see it. Love isn’t and shouldn’t be temporary, superficial, disposable or conditional. Love is much valuable than that.
