If you were to walk down the street and interview 100 people and ask them if love is important, I think you would get almost universal agreement that it is.  Even the Beetles sang “All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.”  It’s important! 

Scripture agrees.  1 Corinthians 13:13 says “But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.”

However, if we asked the same people who agreed on the importance of love: “What does it looks like to love someone well?” …then we would start seeing a massive difference of opinion. 

Scripture clearly commands us to “Love one another” and that we must “Let all that you (we) do be done in love.”  Even the greatest commandment is to love God and the second is to love others.  Yet the definition we have of love is going to greatly impact the life of a Christian.  A biblical definition of LOVE is essential for appropriate application.
