Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own. (H. Jackson Brown, American inspirational author)
Human love is so often self-centered. We want to be “in love” because of how good it feels or for all the joy we experience when we are loved. But serving another in his or her best interest is really the demonstration of genuine, biblical love. When lovers discover and practice this truth, their relationship will bring great joy to both and to those who observe them, as well.
Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them . . . Love each other with genuine affection and take delight in honoring each other (Romans 12:9-10).
