Sometimes, we're a little sloppy about the way we use words. If we're not careful, it carries over into the way we think. Probably no word has been more misused, or overused, than the word "love." We talk about loving ice cream and cake, loving cars, we listen to songs about love, and watch actors love on television.

But the Bible talks about love, too. It says "love" a little different. It says, "Love rejoices in the right, is patient and kind, never insists on its own way, it's not jealous, boastful, rude irritable, or resentful." If this use of the word "love" doesn't square with the way we have thought about it before, maybe we need to take a few minutes to reevaluate and think again.

So let's make the rest of today work a little better by considering the Biblical picture of love, instead of the Broadway picture.
