What is the true meaning of love? Is it something you just feel or is it something you do? Is it a noun, an adjective or is it a verb? It’s sex, right, since that’s what the media, most movies and television shows portray it to be? Take a few minutes and try a quick exercise. Ask several people their definition of love. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone gave you a response that involved sex.
However, the holy bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 13 KJV, the true meaning of love. Also, in the passage below, Charity means love.
1 Corinthians 13 KJV
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
In my devotions, I will always refer to the King James Version bible. If you are looking for a good, affordable copy, I recommend the one pictured below since it has large print and a reference. You can find it here.
