Love is a verb

Love is a verb. 
It's not a feeling 
It's not an adjective 
It's not an utterance for appeasement. 
Love is a commitment. 
It's a binding agreement

It's the blood of the Savior on the cross 
It's the labor of a mother for her child. 
It's the sacrifice of a husband to his wife 
It's the submission of a wife to her husband.  
Love says I forgive you. 
Even before you commit the sin 
Even if I'm hurt by you 
Love is not a feeling. 
A feeling is fleeting. 
An unsustainable emotion. 
Love is an intentional act. 
Not a random thought. 
Love is 1 Corinthians 13 
It's John 3:16 
It's Mark 12:31
It is 1 John 4:18 
Love is a burden 
A beautiful one. 
But a burden still. 
It pushes you out of your comfort zone 
It exposes your sins 
It tells you of your inadequacies 
It humbles you. 
Love is not a buffet 
You don't get to choose what comes on the plate. 
So before you make the declaration 
Before you "click" I agree 
Be sure to read the terms and conditions. 
You don't sign out of love. 
It's lifetime contract.
