Love has been described in many different ways in our society. Indeed love is able to encompass a large area of positive traits. Love is what a man and women can feel for each other. Love can be a close bond between friends. Love can be the sacrifice of ones dreams and goal for those of another. Love can be the one who stands in for another who is deserving of that punishment. Love is love, and it asks no questions but to love.

Love is the strength to stand when you might want to run. It is hard to explain, but the desire to do the right thing will make love strong. Love will stand when others run even though the odds may not be in your favor; you will stay in the struggle because of love. Love is the strength to speak when you might want to be silent, but a burning fire of love will not let you stay silent. Love is the strength to pray when others are silent or afraid. Love will give you the strength to do what must be done, as the scriptures state ,in part, love never fail.

Love can endure many hardship. Love will help you to endure those mountains of self doubt; even when you some times feel very discouraged. Love will give you the ability to endure a cheating spouse; it will also help to leave if need be. Love will help you to endure the financial burdens that we some times find ourselves under. Love will help you to endure disobedient children who continue ignore you instruction and advice. Love will even help you to endure the gossip and slander of so called friends and family.

Love is the ability to tell the truth. It sounds like an easy task to do, but it is certainly not. Love will tell the truth even though, it may not be understood by others. Telling the truth is a true sign that someone love you, because they love you enough to be honest. When your love is very strong, you will tell the truth with a straight forwardness and directness.

Love is love. I think there may be a few other ways to say it, but I think this is a good starting point. If we can show the characteristics of love, then we have a quality of love and a real compassion for our fellow man. Love is a key attribute in our lives. Everybody love somebody, because man is and always has been a communal soul. You should love for the sake of love; it feels good and right.
