What speaks love to you? Is it a gift someone picked out for you? Is it a special day someone organized to show you how much you matter to them?
The world tells us that we can’t live without love. The Beatles tell us love is all we need. Is love something that is here today and gone tomorrow? Or is it something that lasts forever?
Here are 10 things the Bible tells us about love:

1. God is the originator of love.
“We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19). Without God, we would not be capable of loving. It is something he put in us.
God develops our character as we walk with him, and the longer we walk with God, the more people will begin to see what God looks like, because God is love. He tells us in 1 John 3:2 that one day we will totally look like our heavenly Father. Oh what a day that will be. No one will have to guess who our dad is.
