Love? I am speechless

I wrote this in response to the question: “what does love look like to you?”

Often real love leaves you speechless: seeing your bride marching down the aisle towards you, the birth of your children. In those moments none of the words that have crossed the lips of man can fully or adequately describe what is in your heart. God had a great idea to correct that: "The Word became flesh"! Ultimate love is a noun, a person: Jesus the Christ. In His incarnation love was best described and demonstrated not as a feeling but in Him.

For us, as humans, love is a verb. It is a choice to passionately and sacrificially prefer and honor Him and those for whom He died. Those are my thoughts at 3:30 am.
