More than A Feeling

Written By Eddie Duke

Our series for the month of February is “Lovin’ It”.  Yesterday, we saw that love is a command.  God tells us to walk in love. 

I Corinthians 14:1 reads “Pursue love and desire spiritual gifts, and especially that you may prophesy.”  The word ‘pursue’ is a word which means “go after”. 

It implies a choice and love is that.  Love is a choice.  Love is not a feeling.  It may spur feelings and emotions, but love really is something that you choose to do or not.  We choose to love someone or not.  We have a deeper understanding of love when we understand that it is more than a feeling. 

Anyone remember Boston?  I love that song – “More than a feeling”.  Sorry, I digress.   

At any rate, there have been many times that if I would have allowed my feelings to control or motivate my love, I am not sure it would have happened.  I think of the times that I have gotten up with a sick child and can’t honestly say that I ever “felt” like doing that.  Thankfully, my love for them was never based upon my feelings at the time.  Love is a choice.

I am praying that a better understanding of love will enable us to live a life of “lovin it!”
