For us love is a verb. For God love is a noun. God IS love. It’s the essence of His character – of which we can find the ultimate comfort in. It’s why He loves us. The nature of Gods love is displayed in that He gave Himself to us. Our love towards others – whether lover, friend, or foe – should strive to reflect that love.
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:8
There is a design, an alignment to cry
Of my heart to see,
The beauty of love as it was made to be
Love; it will not betray you
Dismay or enslave you, it will set you free
Be more like the man you were made to be
