What Is Love?

There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved. ~ George Sand

1 Corinthians 13:4-7  Love is patient, love is kind, does not envy; it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others; 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.

The Four Types Of Love

What is love mean to you?

The word love is used in many different ways! But what is love?

  • Romantic Love (Eros)—This is the feeling of “being in love,” physical passion, a feeling. Often people think of this kind of love when they think of “love.” Romantic love is healthy when it is a one-man/one-woman monogamous relationship within the bounds of marriage.

 

  • Affection (Storge)—This is the natural bond between parent and child. It is the most natural (it just happens!) and emotive (children can’t help it!), But it can “go wrong,” and people can get hurt when it becomes unhealthy. Affection, too, can be based on feelings.

 

  • Friendship (Phileo)—This is the love between friends. Friendship is the strong bond existing between people who share common interest or activity. But feelings are involved in this kind of love too—cliques can be formed, friends can hurt friends, pride can ruin a friendship.

 

  • Unconditional Love (Agape)—This is the love that cares and loves regardless of the circumstance. It never fails., this is the kind of love Jesus was talking about, the only always-healthy type of love. It is seeking the welfare and the best for another person, regardless of how we feel about them. The other three types of love aren’t sufficient! What makes agape love the only love that is always healthy? It is the same kind of love with which God loves us! Jesus displayed agape love when He went to the cross and died for you and me regardless of how He felt, and in spite of our sinfulness. That is true love!
