Ways of love


Many ways of love exist, but these often come to mind:

Romantic love

Love of friends

Love of country

Love of knowledge or anything else that’s important to us, including

Love of money

Love of power

Obviously those last ways get off track from “real love,” but any way of love can go awry if priorities press or motivations muddle. Even love of church can split into ways that divide “them” and “us.”

To help us avoid splinters with one another and ourselves, the Bible gives a way to examine our motives and realign ourselves with God’s Way of Love:


“And now, O people of God, what does the LORD your God require of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all of God’s ways, to love God, and to serve the LORD your God with all of your heart and all your soul,” Deuteronomy 10:11-13.



Prayer: LORD, God, thank You for showing us Your boundless, pure, unchanging Love through Your living word in the Bible and Your Living Word in Jesus the Christ, The Way.
