the four letter word...

It's the most infamous of the four letter word. Love, its true meaning has been lost in society today. Love has been used as a manipulation tactic, which I hate to say has been used mostly in men and it angers to me see, for instance when a guy wants to push things further, he will attempt to love as a way to get the girl to let him go further. Love has also been used as an excuse. I have a lot of people (both male and female) try to make themselves feel better by saying they are in love. Sometimes Love is used foolishly as well. This when people use love when they probably shouldn't have. I don't doubt what the people are feeling, they just don't understand the full meaning, or it's power. If most people would weigh what they are feeling with the definition and power of love most of them would think twice about using love. Love isn't a scary thing, it's a wonderful thing. When get right down to it. Love is a commitment, no matter when, or how you use it. It's meaning doesn't change even if the user doesn't know it's meaning. Why do you think it's used to talk the other into going further than she/he wants to? It's reassuring that it's ok, because they are "committed". It's the same principle with using it as an excuse. We should step back with someone we want say that to, and see if what we are feeling measures with the true meaning. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 says "Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever, but prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will all disappear." I believe knows no bounds, I don't limits love. I don't believe you have to reach a certain age to be in love. When love is birthed its wonderful thing, the emotion, excitement, "butterflies" in your gut are awesome. It's what happens when those go away that defines love between two people, and love becomes a choice. We need to step back and decide if we even can love, we have to be able to do any of things that is required to sustain it. It's takes time, effort, emotion, energy, commitment, and sacrifice. I know it's the best written thing grammatically. HA. Thanx for reading. -Joel
