Love Is a Who, Not a What

Any discussion of love must begin with the understanding that love is not an emotion, nor is it an action, it is in fact a Who.  1 John 4:8 says, “God is love”. 

If you want a picture of what love looks like, look at God; if you want an example of what love acts like, follow God’s actions; and if you want insight in what love desires, seek the will of God . . . 

Read the rest in this week's Proverbs and Wisdom article.

Featured Non-Profit:

This December with every post till Christmas, I'm featuring a non-profit worthy of support.  You can see a complete list here.

Today's Non-Profit is Compassion International.

Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training.

Today, Compassion helps more than 1.2 million children in 26 countries.  You can sponsor a child for $38 a month and change their eternity forever.

Here's a video with more information:
