Philio Not Valentine! by Fortunatus200(m): 2:19pm On Feb 13, 2017
This is the session when the world celebrates love, which it is yet to define.
In discussing this very important concept, it is worthy of note that love originates from God and not from man.
The word love owns its origin from the Latin word "philio", and is generally perceived to mean a feeling of affection towards fellow humans or towards other created things. However according to Williams Shakespeares " Othello", particularly in the words of Roderigo, love is "merely a lust of the blood and a permission of the will". This definition when critically analyzed can be said to capture only the love of the world ( the Eros love) , and not the primacy of love as intended by God.
Everyday I see humans profess love as it has come to be and not as it ought to be. The love of the world sees a purpose for its existence and as such, it vanishes as soon as that purpose goes into extinction. But the love of God (divine love) as provided for in the book of john 3 exist naturally on all created things, especially on man. It has no purpose attached to it and as such cannot vanishe, that's why even in our sinfulness, God still loves us.

The love of the world is characterized by lust, wealth, popularity, beauty/handsomeness, color, learnedness etc . But the only xtics of the love of God is righteousness, that's why he gave up his only son for our salvation ,so as to bring us all irrespective of our color, race, riches or other worldly vitiating elements.

So let us learn to love ourselves , just as God have shown us . I ❤ U!
