Love,  is an essential need in the world today.
Love....a beautiful word in any language. What does it bring to mind: affection, care, warmth, kindness, kindness, security, mother? But think for yourself, what does this beautiful word really mean? Do you want to be loved?
  God is love and His love abiding in your heart can help you love and be loved. The source of all love is God. 1 John 4:16  reads: "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love: and he  that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him."  No one will ever be truly successful in finding or experiencing love unless he seeks it in and through God.
  Some of the opposites of love are: hatred, mistrust, selfishness, and war. We need only look at many of the conditions prevailing in our world today and in many families to understand that there is a desperate need for love.
How about you? Do you feel you are loved? Do you feel an ache in your heart, a lonliness that will not go away because you feel no affection, no warmth?  Do you at times feel that noone cares?  Have you grown up with parents who did not really love each other or their children? These feelings are common in todays world where the prevailing attitude seems to be "me first".  An aching heart is the result of an individuals indulging in his own selfish interests.
   Love is not a sensual attraction that seeks to gratify its own passion, often at the expense of the other person. This attraction, which some may call love, is selfishness because it seeks its own enjoyment Love does not promote ones own honor or pleasure.
