When we give love away, it always comes back to us. Love is a verb… it is an action… it is THE action. (Dan O’Deens, author)
Many people mistakenly think of love as just an interaction between two bodies that may or may not convey any true sentiment of caring. While God has created us with the ability for physical pleasure in the relationship of marriage, O’Deens correctly notes that it is even more than that. Biblical love is intended to involve our acting toward others for their good.
Don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. (Galatians 5:13)
