Definition of love

Email

In the Bible, the most common word translated as ‘love,’ in the Hebrew and the Greek, has at its root meaning the concept of ‘giving’. True biblical love is not an emotional feeling, but rather a willful act of ‘giving.’ When you stop to think about it, it makes perfect sense. Emotional love comes and goes, but a real lasting love is based on voluntarily ‘giving’ of our time, energy, money, devotion, affections, etc, to God and others.
