Pure Love

What is pure love???

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record 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. ” 1st Corinthians 13:4-7

Am not trying to be religious or anything, but that to me signifies Pure love by all means. I expect that if someone says they love me, they will do the above, otherwise you just don’t, there’s no two ways about it. I don’t even think there’s anything really complicated about Love, it’s just what it is, it’s the people who are complicated and as a result blame it on love.

Just to make it clear, the love am talking about is in general, like love between friends, between siblings, between couples between parents and children and so on. God’s love for us is pure love, for sure, God shows and clearly proves His(own) love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. So I wonder, for us humans if its possible for us to actually love, like truly and purely love.

Like the song, Last Flight Out – Plus One, this song talks about a guy who loves a girl so much that he’s willing to take the red-eye flight for her, no matter what his personal cost. The lyrics reveal a vulnerable side:

Last Flight Out – Plus One

I’m so scared that you will see
All the weakness inside of me
I’m so scared of letting go
That the pain I’ve hid will show

I know you want to hear me speak
But I’m afraid that if I start to
I’ll never stop

[c h o r u s]
I want you to know
You belong in my life
I love the hope
I see in your eyes
For you I would fly
At least I would try
For you I’ll take
The last flight out

I’m afraid that
You will leave
As my secrets
Have been revealed
In my dreams
You’ll always stay
Every breathing moment from now

I know you want to hear me speak
But I’m afraid that if I start to
I’ll never stop

[c h o r u s]

I cannot hold back
The truth no more
I let you wait too long
Although it’s hard and scares me so
A life without you scares me more

Ever thought of those people you would take the last flight out for, and who would reciprocate? Who is it that purely loves you and who do u love back in the same way? #Questions to ponder?

Live, Love, Laugh … Life is short, Live it to the maximum.
