Expressing Love

Most people get married based on love. However, their concept of love often focuses on feelings. I read one definition which said, “Love is a four-letter word, composed of two consonants, L and V; two vowels, O and E; and two fools, you and me.” There is some truth to that, and fools often make poor decisions. In the Bible, love is not a euphoric feeling, but a way of life. In Titus chapter two the older women are instructed to teach the young wives to love their husbands. This implies that love can be learned. It is not something that happens to you. It is something you choose. Once you choose to love, then you look for appropriate ways to express it. This kind of love will lead you to a life-long productive marriage.
