The Proverbs On Love

Love affairs leave good happy memories tucked in slits of time.

Indeed, the fun of life!

If one had loved, there is no cause of alarm. It is of God.

Love accepts and pardons. True love endures and hopes for the best. In most ways, it spreads light to everyone and comforts.

Love waits. It grows wise.

It prays for all from dawn till dusk. No human can ever justify nor contest its power. God lets it prosper to nurture the earth.

Marriage and children are its harvest. Better communities are its stronger seeds. The manifestation of a sweet kiss and a light hug delight the giver and receiver, as the respectful bow or the common hand shake.

The book of Proverbs speaks about love. Check below.

Chapter 4:14-17

Don't do as the wicked do. Avoid their haunts. Turn away, go somewhere else, for evil men don't sleep until they've done their evil deed for the day. They can't rest unless they cause someone to stumble and fall. They eat and drink wickedness and violence!

Thought: Choose your friends. Good friends stay forever. Avoid those who plot evil.

Chapter 4:23-26

Above all else, guard your affections. For they influence everything else in your life. Spurn the careless kiss of a prostitute. Stay far from her. Look straight ahead. Don't even turn your head to look. Watch your step. Stick to the path and be safe.

Thought: Remember the story of the moth. Stay away from the flame. The flame will burn you.

Chapter 5:21

For God is closely watching you, and he weighs carefully everything you do.

Thought: God knows the desires of your heart, mind, and body. He will take care of what you need. All things will work our together for good, if you look up to God.

Don't forget the story of the widow, when she gave her last cent, the story of the juggler when he offered his talent, and the stories of unsung martyrs and saints who gave their lives for others.

What can you let go for your loved ones? What can you sacrifice for your family, friends, community or country?

What can you share in the name of love?

Here's a small prayer:

Dear Jesus, thank you for your love to us all.

Be near if we cry and catch us when we fall.

Dear Jesus, pardon if we didn't heed your call.

Hug us tight! Let your love be the light and goal.
