WISDOM NUGGETS FOR TODAY: What Love Is

What else does TRUE LOVE mean to you? People use the word ‘LOVE’ in many  different ways.

Here is Bisi’s Definition of LOVE:

A very poor man lived with his wife whose hair was so long it touched the waist. One day the wife asked her husband to buy her a comb for her long hair so that it can continue to grow well and to be well groomed. The man felt sorry and said he didn’t have money even to fix the strap of his watch which had just broken and the wife did not insist.

On his way to work, the man passed by a watch shop, sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife. He came back home in the evening with a comb in his hand ready to give to his wife. He was surprised to see his wife with very short hair. She had cut and sold her hair and bought a brand new watch for her husband.

Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes, not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love. Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own. Give love and show love where it matters and let it be the God centered love.

KINDNESS is a Very Big Component of TRUE LOVE

LOVE CHALLENGE: Begin by doing something KIND daily for your Spouse from today right through to the end of the month of February. If you are not married yet, show kindness to at least one person each day, even random acts of kindness.
