. Love .
“Love makes the world go around”
Or so many say. But in the first place, do we actually comprehend the truth value behind the statutes love encompasses? Increasingly so in popular culture, a vast majority flippantly pin definitions to ‘love’ that cushion the harsh reality of its true nature. This trend surfaces in the light usage of the word when referring to aesthetic appreciation, which while correct in principle, does not attach sufficient meaning to the deeper nature of love.
Failing to achieve clarity in this area results in ambiguity led mis-steps such as compensating parental care for gifts, losing oneself to infatuation without clear consideration, blurring acquaintanceship forged out of self interest for friendship, or even shunning romance due to misinformation on the meaning of marriage. From eros (passionate desire), philia (friendship), storge (familial fondness), pragma (pragmatic devotion), to philautia (self care), Love intertwines with every relational facet in our lives, coming back full circle to our relationship with Christ in which shines true love – Agape (self-less love).
Because it is for He, who is Love, the earth twirls on its axis to please.
