These 10 scriptures show the true meaning of love. As you celebrate romance with that special someone – whether an anniversary or birthday, know and understand where love comes from and what true love really means.
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.
