What is love?
I think TM may have many things to comment on this topic as he has seen many marriages and divorces of his friends and relatives as mentioned in his blog.
I titled this blog post "What is love" because this is really my question, yes, what is love? In the bible, it says love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. And some people may confuse love with infatuation where infatuation is the state of being completely lost in the emotion of unreasoning desire.
There are many kinds of love, love for your children, love for your parents, love for your siblings, love for your friends, love for your spouse and so on. But how far would one go to be all giving and not receiving in love. Great is the kind of love who gives and never expects anything in return. It is really not easy to do that.
Just some of my thoughts today.
