On Love

I looked at how my father loved my mother.  I looked at how A loved A.  I looked at him and how he was treating me.

Is this the kind of love that I want?  No.  Because it is not love.

More than how a person looks like, what’s important is how he treats you.  More than looks is the heart–for you.  They may be the most good-looking person on earth but if they would not treat you right then don’t settle for less than you deserve.

I am reminded of this verse as I think about these things:  Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. (Philippians 4:8)
