Love does make the world go around. Romantic love fills the airways. In some ways it's treated like a four-letter word. As an older Christian, I see other forms of love. In Dina Sleiman's book entitled Love in Three Quarter Time, the main character (Constance) is in love with dance, and with a young colonial plantation owner, and in love with herself.
Okay, it's a "chick book" and I have been struggling through it, I admit. However, I continue pressing on, and I'm glad I did. A new love started emerging. Christ's love. Dina brings it in through a refreshing way that took me by surprise. Naturally, Constance is introduced to Christ in a way that upsets her staus quo. Staunch religiosity, and stiff, formal, unemotional assemblies provide nothing to slaves longing for freedom. She starts seeing a different love that surpasses her traditional upbringing.
JESUS. This is the the type of love that makes a difference. Christ's love is unconditional love. His love sets you free, keeps you safe, improves your decisions, gives you a purpose, and makes your life complete. His love saves you.
The world? That love falls miserably behind the Jesus-love. See what He has to offer. He has answers to questions that you haven't even thought of yet.
