True Love

"If the word hate is so strong, then how come you throw around the word love like it's nothing?"

How true this is today. Love obviously has a completely thinned out meaning from the deep meaning of it's previous states.

Unfortunately, English only has one word for love. This was not so for the Greek; they had a word for the way God love you, a word for the way you love God, a word for the way people love people, and a few others.

What is said in the quote above is seen a lot today in many places, but a specific one is Facebook. Almost Every time I get on Facebook, I see where girls have commented on a friends status, "Love ya girl!", "I love you so much, you are my best friend", "Hey darling, can't wait to see you tonight, love ya". You know what I'm talking about, most of you see it every day. You hop on to Facebook or Twitter when you get home from work or school, and it's right there in front of you: "@hannahcarson96 is the coolest person in the world, I love her so much!"

The reason I pick on teenage girls is because they are the worst at this. You know it's true; there are some that aren't into that, but for the most part, it's true. It also happens between girlfriend and boyfriends. "thinking about u today, love you sweety" and in reply the other will say "awwww, <3 you 2!!!!!!!!"

We seem to have forgotten what love really is. It's not what a boy and a girl think they feel for each other, it's not what teenage girls think of there friends. Love is the fact that the Lord, our God, sent his one and only Son to die for us all on the cross!!! Please don't forget that.

This was not meant to offend anyone, especially those who are married; I know two people really can be in love, I just think all this could be a lot simpler if we just had more then one word for love because I really hope you care about God more then you do your dog or that cupcake you just ate...

There Is a Way by NewWorldSon is a song that somewhat relates to the main theme of this post check it out on YouTube.
