Love is a Verb
Is it nice to be told you are loved? Yes, but what is greater than that is to be showed love. Love is a verb. Over the past 10 years together Curtis has showed me his love for me by his actions. I truly hope that my actions have shown how much I love him, my family, and all my friends. Don’t limit showing your love for others to this one day a year, share your love all 365 (366 during leap year).
The only reason I can share my love with others is because God loved all of us first. He created us. He provided for us and not just for our physical needs but our spiritual ones as well. He loves us all so much that He sacrificed His only Son to ridicule, torture, and death so that our sins could be washed away by the blood, all so we could spend eternity with Him. Through these plus many more actions God proves that love is a verb and that we should follow by His examples.
Below are just a small handful of scriptures giving us directions of love.
“Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs.” Proverbs 10:12
“Love is patient & kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does no demand its own way. It is not irritable, & it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, & endures through every circumstance.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
“Three things will last forever-faith, hope, & love- and the greatest of these is love” 1 Corinthians 13:13
“Always be humble & gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love” Ephesians 4:2
“Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.” Colossians 3:14
“This is the message you have heard from the beginning: We should love one another” 1 John 3:11
“We know what real love is because of Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers & sisters.” 1 John 3:16
