Nancy Leigh DeMoss: People throw the word lovearound a lot, but they don’t always know what it means.
“Hey, I’d love to get together sometime.”
“Oh, I love this new song!”
“Doughnut? I love doughnuts!”
Nancy: In Proverbs 7 we read about a woman who uses the wordlove very loosely.
“Come, let us take our fill of love till morning; let us delight ourselves with love.”
Nancy: She’s saying this in the context of luring a young man to her bedroom, and her words show that she doesn’t understand what she’s talking about. True love is about giving rather than taking.
”Let us take our fill of love.”
Nancy: She wants immediate gratification and doesn’t care that the delights of this forbidden fruit won’t last.
“our fill of love till morning.”
Nancy: Love is about commitment. It’s about seeking the best interest of others. It’s about giving rather than taking.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
