Love is always a good subject to write about. It is good to reflect upon what God wants us to know about love which is not exactly what the world wants us to know. I thought it would be fun to pull together the things that I and my friends have written about love. I hope you will go read these articles.
The KJV Bible uses the word “charity” in its most popular definition of love:
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. (1 Corinthians 13:4-13)
Of course that is what real love is — an action. Just as we think of giving when we hear the work charity, we ought to think about giving when we hear the word love.

It is great to reflect upon how much God loves us and because He first loved us we love Him (1 John 4:19). Why not extend that same “action” to others?
