When Love is Difficult

Three things that will last forever are faith, hope and love. The greatest of them all is Love. 

What is love to you? The biblical  meaning is Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it doesn't boast and it isn't proud. It doesn't dishonour others, it's not self-seeking, it's not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong. That's how God showed his love to us, because God is love.

I was watching and listening to the preaching of a pastor about Love series, and how we practice love according to Christ love to us. Sometimes we misunderstand the kind of love we show to our friends, loveones or to our partner or in marriage.  But the truth is there is the real kind of  love we experience, there is true love and a there is a counterfeit love.

Lets find out the difference between True and Counterfeit Love.

What is true love? True love is a choice, true love is sacrifice and a commitment. It's unconditional and acceptance of the other persons imperfection. It's about faithfulness and trust.The person consider the feelings of another person and dont give up easily, there is no fear in love but perfect love cast out no fear, because fear involve punishment and the one who fears is not perfected in love. 

Counterfeit love? Is all about feelings, its being self centered kind of love. A person may show love  for it's own benefits. The person thinks he/she loves you according to how he/she feels only, more on attraction or physical connection but not with a pure heart to accept a person imperfection if some challenges in the relationship. The person uses most of his feelings, our emotions are sometimes uncontrollable that if we used it in a bad situation it will just destroy the relationship because the feelings are unstable if we decide only according to our negative emotion it doesn.t result to a better decision.

In my personal experience, I always show true love to someone, but sometimes im a difficult person to love, maybe because I can be moody and sensitive, and this video helps me learn and realise what kind of person I am.

I will share the video of the preaching, about the Love Series, it has a few episodes and you can search it on youtube. it's worth watching.
