L.O.V.E.

I love you is not something to mess with.

You shouldn't say it unless you mean it.

It's powerful-when true.

Unfortunately, we're so used to hearing it and saying it when it's not real.

But lets take a look at what it really means.

Before you say it again think about what love is.

Love isn't a feeling. It's not an emotional high, or a strong attraction and it certainly isn't having the hots for someone.

Love is saying you're putting the other person above yourself, it's saying you're going to do whats right with how you treat them.
It's saying you're going to be there for them, that you care about them. Love is a choice, to rise above the selfishness we're born into and care about someone else.

Love isn't something that can ever die, in fact love transcends death. Love is the most powerful thing there is. Love is of God, we can love because He loved us first.

So the next time you say I love you, think about that, love is of God-you had better freaking mean it or you just might have Him to contend with.

Lets get serious here guys, saying I love you and meaning it shouldn't be two different things.

Because love isn't a word, it's a verb. It's an action, a constant action, it's how we live everyday. It's every choice we make, everything we do, is it for love?

So don't say it unless you're willing to back it up everyday, unless you're willing to work for it, to live your life for it and to die for it.
