I don’t know why this prompt didn’t fall on the purported day of love but henewe, let me tell you all about luuuuuuuurve. And its not this poem I wrote a while back.
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but I do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
And if I have prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so that I can remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
If I give away everything I own, and if I give over my body in order to boast, but do not have love, I receive no benefit.
Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious.
Love does not brag, it is not puffed up. It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful.
It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends. But if there are prophecies, they will be set aside; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be set aside.
1st Corinthians 13:1-8
Do not be deceived. Love isn’t something that happens in 5 seconds (looking at you Danielle Steele) but something that happens over time. And what is love if not costly? As the Bible verse points out, You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving.
Real love does not always follow our natural inclinations; it is not an impulse from feelings. At all costs, this love compels us to give of ourselves, instead of seeking to fulfill our emotional and physical needs.(1 Peter 3:8–9).
Kaale with a mic drop of the love verse I don’t think I need to add anything more, do I?
