What is Love?

Love is not made in a club
Love is not kissing you through the phone
Love is not about the loosening of lips and the swinging of hips
Love is not about licking lollipops
Love is not about having whatever you like

Love is given to you from God above
The love in your heart is abundant
Caring, sharing, and listening is Love
Love is trusting and kindness
Love is displayed by not just what you say 
Love is displayed through what you do.
Love is hope

The 1st stanza is not Love.  Today's uprising culture is skewing the definition of Love.  It is making love seem like it is obtainable through solely a physical relationship and that is sickening.  On the radios today you hear about twerking, grinding, and more sex as you can see it has taken a huge shift from the "I want to hold your hand" by the Beatles.  Culture has a huge influence on how we see and perceive things in our own life.  Satan can blind us from the real Love that God gives to us and puts into our lives.  
Real Love is what God tells us in the Bible it is right in front of us the truth is right there.  Love is not what Lil' Wayne, Soulja Boy, or Matt Nathanson says it is, Love is what Jesus has already told us, "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails." (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)  The Love the media sells today is self-seeking, it does envy, it does fail, it does not persevere.  The media is selling Love that delights in evil, exactly what Love is not supposed to be.  Do not listen to Satan's lies as he tries to pull you astray.  Do not get lost.  Do you really want to buy that as Love? The Love that holds that media's stamp of approval is not real Love.  Let the word of God reign true, if you want to know what real Love is it is right in front of you, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
