With another Valentine’s Day upon us, not much thought is spent on the true meaning of love. This is what The Bible says, love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails…
The Bible gives us a clear and detailed definition of what love really is in 1 Corinthians 13. The whole chapter is dedicated to guiding and educating us on its different aspects, it should be called the “Love Chapter”.
Let’s explore some of the different aspects:
It’s time to send a different message to young people about the difference between infatuation and love. If we’re going to restore marriage to a place of honor and respect, we must teach that the role of one’s partner is not to save you from yourself and make you feel alive, fulfilled, and complete; only you can do that. It’s time to teach a different message.
You don’t have to encourage it, or welcome it, but you better learn to suck it up from time to time. We have mythologized love to such an extent that people are no longer prepared for the realities of long-term relationships. We are taught that it is good not to compromise, not to put up with anything we don’t like, not to sacrifice our own beliefs for anyone or anything. Yet compromise and sacrifice are the cornerstones of marriage.
No matter what way you dress it up, the best thing you can bring to a marriage is not the feelings but romance’s poor relation: tolerance. Add to that enough maturity to be able to fulfill your own needs and you have some hope. Optimism and chemistry, which seem to be the bedrock of the modern marriage, just don’t cut it, folks. And while I am pontificating, one more tip for the ladies: Try to find a man who has that most underrated of qualities: character.
Test your love and see how real it is. Enough said, ‘Happy Valentine’s Day!’
