What happened to love?

The topic of Love is the one thing that has left the world shifting uncomfortably. To start with, Parents are key players in what our children grow up into believing love is.

Eucharista Ward (2009) once said “We do our children no favor by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favor we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.”

Hence the question, “what do we want our children to grow up into? Believing in? Should they shun love or should they embrace it?

If love is the basis for building families, then why do men hit their wives? Why are there street children? Where is the love that bound these two beings together?

1st Corinthians 13:4-8…..“4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.” New International Version (NIV)……

What happened to love being this overwhelming feeling that took over both men and women and made marriage worth considering?
