In the movie classic Fiddler On The Roof, Tevye, the husband and main character, gently asked his wife, Golde, in song, "Do you love me?" Her response was very pragmatic and evidential. She explained that since she has been committed for over 25 years to him in marriage and serves him around the house that her love is sure. How can we tell that we are people of love? What is the proof? How do loving people act around other people? These verses tell us.
God's love is the missing ingredient in many of our relationships. Many of them are merely perfunctory and unfortunately erode over time. In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul paints a picture of what true love is and what it is not. Throughout the text, Paul shows us that true love has many facets and explains it in both positive and negative terms. He tells us our love for others is meant to be a mirror of Christ's love for us. This series looks at what true love really is, highlighting how we can learn to let love govern our personal relationships.
