Love

February 15, 2019

In the English language there is only one word that describes the complexity of human feelings for others and that is the word: LOVE.

 

It was not always that way. According to the Ancient Greeks, they had around 30 words to describe love…in different shades.  I’ve chosen a few rods that will help us have a greater understanding of the emotion…which they say from the past, “that makes the world go round.”

 

Agape – It is a God kind of love.  This love expresses the deep and constant love and interest of God to an unworthy world, producing and fostering a reverential love in them towards the Giver.

 

Storge- Family love.  The love a parent has for a child or a child has for  favorite aunt or uncle.

 

Pragma-Love which endures.  The love between a married couple which develops over a long period of time.  The love which endures in sickness or in health.

 

Philantia-Self-respect.  The love we give ourselves.  Also, the strength to care for ourselves so that we can in turn care for others.

 

Philia-Shared experience.  The love we feel for people we strive with to achieve a shared goal.  Brotherly love.

 

Ludus-flirting, playful affection.  The feelings we have when we test out what it might be like to be in love with someone.

 

Eros-romantic and erotic love.  This love is based on sex and powerful magnetism.  This one can get you into trouble.

 

To get a real handle on love and it’s true meaning please take time and study out 1 Corinthians 13.  This chapter, the hymn of love will come alive to you as you take your time and study slowly.  Try reading it three ways: 1.  Read it as Paul wrote it 2.  Put the words “Jesus Christ” in place of the word “love” and read it again 3.  Read the passage also as a prayer for your own life, that the virtues of love will be manifest in you.

 

Live love loudly today!
