'Love' we all want it and need it. love is the fulfillment of the soul, a longing of the heart. Love is what makes us whole. The absence of love leaves a deep hole in the very core of our lives, a deep hole that will need to be filled with something or someone. Genuine love is love that is sacrificial not thinking of oneself (only what they need) but for the other person.
it is a selfless love that gives and gives without looking for something in return. Unconditional love is just the opposite of genuine love, it not only looks for something back in return it demands it. it is a fake love that is selfish, a love that is only given when it has been earned. Genuine love is rarely seen as it takes a changed heart to show and give genuinely love, a love that only comes from our Heavenly Father.
If you feel empty inside and just need to be loved God knows this and wants you to know how much he loves you today. He never disappoints us and His love never fails. 1 John 4:9-10 says, God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love--not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Be encouraged today you are not forgotten, you are loved.
