Love is Patient.
April 12, 2011 Comments Off on Love is Patient.
Often times I get the question of “What is love” or “Am I really feeling love?” Well, I can’t really tell you what you feel deep down inside or the butterflies that you get when you around that special someone. However, what I can tell you is that love never compromises your beliefs or morals. Often times, we feel like we have to give into someones elses wants and desires. Girls feel like they have to give into what their boyfriends want. Guys feel like they have to give into their bodily desires or mindset. I pose this question: is there an actual point to having a physical relationship, yet? While I have not lived under a rock my entire life, physical relationships however shallow or deep they actually are, always end up hurting you the worst and leaving the greatest scar.
Think about a relationship, can you actually picture it without the hookups on the couch or the dorm room experiences? If you can’t, you should question your own morales for wanting to be in a relationship. If you gear your relationship to lead through the physical aspect, you are going to eventually run the relationship into a dead end because you have nowhere to grow into. Think about it this way: when you were younger, your parents would buy you a nice pair of shoes with plenty of room to go into because they didn’t want to waste their investment. If you center your relationship around the physical things, you are buying a shoe that fits your foot exactly and it has no room to grow into. Remember: love is patient, if you give into your own or someone else’s desire you ARE NOT being patient. Therefore, you are not experiencing love.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” -1 Cor. 13:4-7
