World says find the right person, Bible says be the right person. Secret to happiness is in being
Love is not a feeling but willing. You can’t control how you feel but you can control how you feel
World says fall in love, God says walk in love. Love is path not valley
World says marry the person you love, God says love the person you marry
Human love is very selfish by nature, God’s love is very sacrificial by nature God’s love is not fish love but cross love. Hate is not OPPOSITE of love
2 Samuel 9:6-7
