My Love

What love isn’t:  “I love me, and I want you to make me as happy as I can be.  If you can continue to make me as happy as I can be, then I will continue in this relationship.”

What love should be: “Love is a commitment you make to act in someone else’s best interest.  True love can only be known by the actions that it prompts.”

“Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”  1 Corinthians 13:4-7
