We certainly live in a culture that talks a lot about love, huh? Certainly in our music, in our movies, and in all forms of entertainment, it's amazing how many people are talking about love. But what the world often means or at least offers is something that is self-serving or fickle or manipulative or shallow. If we don't counteract that at some point with teaching from the word of God, it's quite possible, at least for some, that we could see through a worldly grid of love and come out with something that is far different than what the word of God would teach. The beauty is, in places like John 13-17, Jesus invites us to be a fly on the wall as he teaches on love and what we can learn in this discourse can dramatically impact the way that we love others.
