So, what is LOVE?


Love is the sovereign preference of one person for another, and spiritually, Jesus demands that the preference be for Himself.

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, May 11, Barbour and Company, Inc, 1935, 1963

Love is the will and determination to value another person.

Everette Worthington, "Family Counseling: An Approach That Works." Christian Counseling Today, October 1992, pages 13-17.

Love seeks the highest and greatest good for the other person and provides for the one loved within the lover’s power to provide.


Love is giving one another space to be all that they are, and all that they are not.


If human love does not carry a man beyond himself, it is not love.If love is always discreet, always wise, always sensible and calculating, never carried beyond itself, it is not love at all.
Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, February 21, Barbour and Company, Inc, 1935, 1963

Love is not a feeling, or a special way of feeling, but the divine way of relating to others and oneself that moves through every dimension of our being and restructures our world for good.

Dallas Willard, Renovation of the Heart, Page 183, Navpress, 2002

Love is the outpouring of one personality in fellowship with another personality.

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, December 12, Barbour and Company, Inc, 1935, 1963

(All of these "definitions" are for the agape kind of love and are based upon choices instead of feelings.)

Simple Relationship Reality
A woman feels safe and secure when connected. A man feels safe and secure when competent.
When he becomes competent at connection and she acknowledges it, both are safe and secure.
