Love... Who doesn't love Love? lol I remember as a young person experiencing love as a state of being, an emotion, a place, an arrival. Of course that's how we all first encounter Love. But Love the noun is an immature understanding of Love in my opinion. It turns out that Love is really more like a verb. Oh sure, we can feel Love, we can get that warmth that comes when we are "in love" and so forth. But for my money, love means action.
When I Love someone I am acting, sharing, giving, helping, caressing, nurturing, respecting. I am being honest, the most Honest I can be when it comes to Love. If I am Loving it is to be Pure Love, unobstructed by inappropriate motives, or it ceases to become Love. That means Unselfishness is important if I am to truly, Absolutely Love. God teaches us to love Him as He Loves us, without condition, as Purely, Unselfishly and as Honestly as we can. So, it is by no mistake that we come to Love at the end of our treatment of the "Big Four." God teaches us that envy, bitterness, deceit, pride, lust have no place where Love is concerned. Jesus taught us that the greatest gift we can give or receive is our Love. And while I am sure He doesn't want us to give it lightly, I don't think He means we should give Love only sparingly. He wants us to Love. He instructs us to Love one another, all of "one another."
But, don't do it lightly, without the realization of Love's power and reach. Give Love, share Love, expect Love and your will be living as He intends.
