Biblical Understanding of Human Emotions, Part 1 t00286

Love is an emotional concern in which the lover acts sacrificially on behalf of the loved one. Love is not about give and take, as the world says. Children are born, not inherently lovable, but loved because of their parents’ love capacity. The child interprets love as deserved, although it is not. But the child is unable to have all love needs met by the parent, which leads to anger. Parents must learn to balance chastening and emotional love, as God does. Love does not have to be logical. It is not logical to give up your life in order to gain it. The foundation of love includes repentance, forgiveness, sacrificial love, and faith that love will bring good results.’
