    Just What IS Love?

    1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

    Below are two videos. In the first video, a group of adults offer up their own definitions of love. In the second, a rather sassy crew of youngsters will tackle the very same topic: what is love?

    It’s a classic case of “who said it better?” between two very different generations that has us feeling especially warm and fuzzy inside. But it also begs the question: is love at age 9 really so different from love at age 29…?

    You tell us.

    And now for the kids…let’s hear it, boys and girls:

    Share your own definition of love with us in the comments section below!

    1. Hi PI! I think love is when you give your heart to someone and you give them your all. For example, God. He takes care of us and he really, really cares for and has good intentions for us. He doesn’t want us to tear people down or make them feel less than what they truly are. In terms of boyfriend/girlfriend relationships, love is when you share your heart with that person, like to halves put together. You genuinely care about and for that person, you really have good intentions for that person, you want to make them happy and you just are so passionate about that person. You get all tingly inside and your heart starts beating really, really fast. Yeah, so, basically, that’s what I think love is but honestly, I think that God’s love is the best love of all.

    2. From what I understand, love isn’t all about “warm fuzzies”. Those little amazing moments and feelings are definitely a plus, but true love is shown by actions and not feelings. For example, my mother told me that when she gets into a fight with her husband, she doesn’t feel all warm and fuzzy, but she still chooses to love him with her actions. Another example could be when a parent discipline’s their child. They don’t feel all lovey-dovey towards them at the time but they discipline them because they love them and want what’s best for them. If we base love on just the pure fuzzy and happy feeling we have all the time, then it will crumble fast, because feelings can be deceitful and feelings will come and go.

    3. I think that kids have a better grasp and concept on love than adults is sort of sad. WE adults need to start approaching the idea of love/romance/dating from a fresh, almost childlike perspective. There is a reason that Jesus said “let the little children come to me”. He knew that kids don’t over think and weigh on choices the way adults do. I’m not saying throw yourself into every important choice. Things related to business and finance are relatively boring but need to be considered carefully. But love is something that doesn’t take a scientist to understand. 6 year olds understand that you can’t always put into words exactly what love means to you. You just need to trust in yourself and the feelings that you have about that other person. Something to consider is the way you feel about someone you consider family. I would literally do anything in the world for my little brother. I know without a doubt I love to the very bottom of my heart. I want to find a special man that I KNOW I love like my brother, BUT CHOOSE to fall IN love with every single day of my life.
