Put everything you have ever been told about love back on a shelf somewhere. Love is like everything else we have been taught, it is only what has been passed down to us. Whoever taught us before could only teach us what they have been taught. I thought love was a feeling, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Love is kind, it is not self seeking. Love looks for the best in everything and anybody. No matter what! Love does not back bite or gossip. We have all been in the other person’s shoes and some of you reading this may be still there. That does not mean you have to stay there. It is a choice made everyday. Jesus taught that we should love others as He loved them.
