I 'love' my family. I 'love' to eat ice cream. I 'love' to hang out with a friend and drink coffee. I'm 'in love' with my husband. I would 'love' to visit Disney World again soon. The word 'love' is in so many scenarios in our society. Have we cheapened the meaning of love by using it in too many situations?
Love can be defined in various ways from "sexual passion or desire", "strong enthusiasm, or liking for anything", and "to have a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person." So when someone talks about love, how do you know what kind of love they are talking about?
Imagine Hope is going to help you figure out the different types of love this week and which love applies to which relationships. We hope you are able to realize that the romance type of love is not the only important type of love to celebrate. There are many other fulfilling love relationships to recognize too! Keep reading for more tomorrow!
