[Love] is not self-seeking...
"Have you ever said, 'I love oranges?' Exactly what do you mean by that? You are actually saying oranges do something for me. But after you have squeezed everything you like out of the orange you will throw away the peelings... Biblical love is not getting all you can from another person but giving all you can."
I read this quote today, reminding me of the true meaning of love.
Real love is a love that gives. Selfish love is one that takes.
Take some time to really consider your relationships and your understanding of love.
What do you do when you reach a point in which you are no longer receiving? No longer feeling? No longer enjoying? What happens then?
Since when has our definition of love shifted from the biblical act of giving to the selfish act of receiving? Since when are we focused on getting instead of offering? Taking instead of sacrificing?
Lets learn to truly love.
