Love Left Undefined

Much has been made and said about the word love. Right from the beginning the world was set in love. Sin tried to come between this eternal bond between man and his creator. Jesus’ mission on earth was made complete by the crucifixion and ascension to heaven.
Surely this isn’t a new topic for us to discuss but then again the attributes and characteristics of this four letter word is rather too much for our brains to ponder on. What is love then? Personally, I don’t believe there’s just a sentence to define love. It is an emotion that cripples and overwhelms the recipient.
I am writing this not attempting to explain anything or unravel any hidden mysteries on the word. Rather this piece is written to just babble over something as amazingly beautiful. Love is a feeling when felt, lights up the darkest of tunnel. Love is light and light is God, for he sent his only begotten son to come and die for sinners and devourers of his holy name. Love is when Abraham, provided with a miracle of a child still listened to and obeyed his Maker when asked to kill this very son.
1Chorinthians 13 doesn’t in my opinion do justice to the word as the simple term ‘agape love’. Imaging ticking all the points made about love in that passage. OH WHAT A FEELING!!! And God our father ticks all these and a trillion times more than we could fathom. Love can’t do wrong; it is a force of nature that is in to stay. And we are encouraged to love thy neighbor as thine selves. What I find interesting is that the bible’s report didn’t say like but instead love. So now let’s make reference to the incomplete list made in Corinthians and see if we project such feelings to our selves. Do we love ourselves or has saying this sacred word already become a cliché. If we don’t agree that we love ourselves that much how could we replicate this(whatever this enigmatic feeling entails) towards others. Have we truly felt love, then why would we not want to share this happiness *another understatement* with our fellows? Let’s fix our selves before we could move to our neighbors. I trust that God open our minds to make us ask for the greater gifts(faith, hope)and the greatest of them all – imagine that – love.
