Life is a struggle to find love – to get it, feel it, keep it, give it, understand it. As with all other aspects of life, the Bible enables us to come to grips with love, especially in the life and words of Jesus Christ.  Through Him, we can begin to understand that God is the starting point for love; that, in fact, God is love.
Scripture: 2 Timothy 3:1-5; Mark 10:21; 1 John 4:7-8; 1 John 4:9-10; 1 John 4:19-21; John 15:9-14; Matthew 23:37; Romans 8:38-39
