I’ve often asked myself what is love and was left bewildered. I knew love wasn’t just a sexual relationship or encounter. I knew it wasn’t always found in marriages or in the family. These were expected places, but not necessarily where love could be found.
After soul searching, the answer came to me: Love is when God puts someone in your life to understand and to help. These encounters and relationships are emotionally and spiritually adventurous, as we have to spend time and effort to really get to know someone. Sometimes we might see the need right away and are called just the same to love. Whichever is the case, it’s for us to invest whatever God gives us and provide the much-needed love.
