“What’s love got to do with it?” Everything! It was God who so loved the world that HE GAVE His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) I guess you can say that real love makes you want to give and it is willing to sacrifice it's own happiness to be a blessing to someone else.
As humans we are all seeking to be loved. However, what we really want is “REAL LOVE”. Sometimes it can be confusing to know for sure if someone loves you for you or if they are saying they love you to get something from you. Real Love is caring about the happiness of another person without wanting anything in return.
How do you know when you truly are loved? 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 say it best:
Real love is patient
Real love is kind
Real love does not envy
Real love does not boast
Reel love does not dishonor others
Real love is not self-seeking
Real love does not get angry easily
Real love does not keep record of wrongs
Real love does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth
