Love is Eros,philos,agape

Happy Valentines Day Love is a special word especially when it is taken form the bible it can mean so many different things like Eros is a sexual love and philos is a esteem and affection found in a casual friendship.Paul chose a rare Greek word for his definitive passage on love this word agape which describes a love that is based on the deliberate choice of the one who loves rather than the worthiness of the one who is loved.This kind of love goes agaisnt natural human inclination.It is giving,selfless,expect-nothing-in-return kind of love.
Love suffers for a long time we want to get rid of people in our lives that are different from us or are hard to deal with.
Love does not envy.If our love is directed towards others,we will rejoice in the blessing they recieve rather than desiring what they have.God calls us to not involve pride or glory.It does not parade itself and is not puffed up.If we truly love others,we will be able to put our desires to the side and our own plans,agendas for the good of another.
Love is not provoked.That is,love is not easily angered or over-sensitive.When we truly love others we are careful not to be touchy concering other people's words or actions toward us.
Love does not rejoice in iniquity,but rejoices in the truth.The Godly love described in this chapter has nothing to do with evil,but has everything to do with what is right and true.It believes all things it hopes all things.Love never gives up knowing God can change lives for the better.
Love endures all things.Love accepts any hard ship or rejection and continues to build up and encourage.
The love described by Paul in this"love chapter" means determining what is best for another person and then doing it.This is the kind of love that God shows to us.
With that all said I hope everyone has a happy valentines day if you have a problem with some one today is the day to make it right go to that person and ask for forgiveness even if you feel that they are wrong.God will be with you every step of the way He will even tell you what to say if you ask him.
LOVE,CHAR

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a note at my blog, Char! It's so nice to know that people are reading.

I like your blog, especially your Valentine post.

This was such a sweet reminder:

"if you have a problem with some one today is the day to make it right go to that person and ask for forgiveness even if you feel that they are wrong.God will be with you every step of the way He will even tell you what to say if you ask him."

What a good idea--instead of only indulging ourselves and our loved ones--to think about mending fences on Valentines Day and showing the Love of Christ!
