Is there any such thing as a recipe for love? I dunno, but maybe this comes close:
Love isn’t just a feeling, it’s something that you *do,* right? Interestingly, the verb-love often leads to or enhances the noun-love.
So…define “love.” Aside from feeling all warm & fuzzy, (and aside from a little sheet music,) what is it, how do you do it?
I think Ephesians 4 is a good place to start. The theme of chapter four is unity, love for each other, taking off the bad and putting on the good. It’s all summed up in the last two verses. Let go of the anger, the bitterness, and the negativity. Put it away from you and don’t let it be a part of you. Instead, be kind, compassionate, and forgiving. In this way, we love.
