What It Really Means To Say I Love You

It's Valentine's day, a day we celebrate love and what love is all about. The word "Love" has been greatly abused and misused.
For so many, love is all about what they feel, for some people, love is all about the fun, while for some other people it's all about the sex that they enjoy.

When you tell someone "I Love You" have it in mind that you are saying"I'm devoted to you no matter what" because love is all about "SACRIFICE" when there is no sacrifice, there is no love.

Love is more than what you feel at a particular point in time. So many people have this mindset about love being a feeling and when the feeling is no more, Love is ditched.


You must have come across this Bible passage so many times but I really want you to take your time to read meaning out of it and understand it.

1 Corinthians 13:3 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love, I've gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love.
4 Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn't want what it doesn't have. Love doesn't strut, Doesn't have a swelled head,
5 Doesn't force itself on others, Isn't always "me first," Doesn't fly off the handle, Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
6 Doesn't revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
7 Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going till the end.
8 Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit, but love never dies.

Yes Love never dies! Jesus Christ is our perfect example of love. He came and He gave His life, He gave it all just for us to be saved.

Would you still give without expecting it back or without getting praised?

Would you still love that person if those curves and packs are gone?

Would you still love when you feel nothing?

These are the questions we need to ask ourselves. If we're honest enough to answer them correctly, then we can start to do away with the wrong notions of love.

Love genuinely today!
Happy Valentine's day everyone!
