A Love That Surpasses All Knowledge (A Biblical Definition of Love)

three-red-hearts-clipartWhen I was going through a rough time in my life several years ago, I started a study on the biblical definition of love.

That study started:

There is a verse in the Bible that virtually everyone knows – if not verbatim, at least they would recognize it when they heard it. Next to John 3:16, it is perhaps the best known verse in the Bible. It reads as follows:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. [1 Corinthians 13:4-8]

The point of this series, following some introductory articles, is to look at each aspect of love laid out in this verse.  Thus far, it includes the following posts:

  1. What does love have to do with Marriage? [09/03/2008]
  2. The Flow of Love [09/10/2008]
  3. A Love That Surpasses All Knowledge [09/18/2008]
  4. Hurry Up and Wait! [09/24/2008]
  5. The Power of Kindness [10/01/2008]
  6. I Wish I Had Written That! [10/08/2008]

  1. I got another insite to love while reading this site and it changed alot of things in my life.
    love is a word whose meaning is loaded with the meaning of other important words found in 1 corinthians 13:4-8.

  2. Toyin,

    Thanks for the comment. Studying 1 Corinthians 13 and the real meaning of love changed my life. It changed how I relate to my wife, how I relate to my kids, how I relate to other people in general and how I relate to God. Your comment reminded me that this is a series I need to get back to and finish writing. Thanks again for reading!
