Love is often talked about and more often misunderstood. Love in our world is primarily a feeling. Biblically speaking love is so much more than a feeling. From a Biblical point of view love moves. It is an action toward others, on behalf of others, and for the benefit of others. In it’s purest form it is self-sacrificing without the expectation of return.

Being “at peace” means different things to different people. For some, it means a lack of stress in life. For others, it means financial security—money in the bank, nice things, and good retirement plan.
