Today I’ll be visiting with some special friends. One of the subjects we well undoubtedly discuss is love: Family love. Parental love. Dating love. Romantic love. Marital love. The love for the arts, and love for the artists who create it.
I’m sure we will talk about love.
Tomorrow, my wife, Amy and I will celebrate our 326th month wedding anniversary. We’ll talk about our love.
After all this time you think maybe love would be a breeze, but no.
Selfishness creeps into my heart and mind so easily.
So, in order to defend my heart I’m intentionally captivated by these words of love penned a long time ago:
Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. 1
If I got those right, maybe I would be captivated by love.
How about you?
