What is this thing called Love?


It is not measured

by gifts great or small,

or acts of kindness

expressed one day alone,

but by chosing to live

a selfless life, with a heart

that does not seek

to take what he deserves not,

but to give back what another need’s;

it is that which God call’s love.

Joyce E. Johnson (2018)

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” I Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV This is called the ‘Love chapter’ by many bible scholars. I love this scripture passage as it teaches us how to love unselfishly, the kind that gives back, not expects to receive, a good lesson in life. JEJ
