Enduring Love

Look out for false notions of love; [love] isn’t measured in sentiment but in endurance. Have they stayed the course? (Author unknown)

The topic of love has to be one of the most discussed and written about themes in the world. Poems, plays, songs—they are all filled with thoughts of love. In many—if not most—uses, love is an emotion or a sentiment. In all too many cases, then, it is fleeting; so, as suggested above, the real test is endurance. Real love—caring for another’s best interest—will “stay the course.”

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. (1 Corinthians 13:7)
