Love – Just Do It

baby with shirt "LOVE"

There are many ways to define love and to act it out, but God’s love has a specific purpose – to love for the benefit of others. We can love others like God loves us – spouse and children included! Get inspired by God’s Word and some personal insights from Christine and Steph on how to teach and train yourself and your children in love. 

Discussion Points:

  • Emotions play a part
  • Love is an action, not just a feeling
  • Loving for the benefit of others
  • Worldly love vs. God’s love (agape love) 


  • 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 – Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[a] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
  • 1 John 4:18 -There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
  • 1 John 4:19 – We love because he first loved us.
  • Galatians 6:9 – Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
  • 1 Peter 4:8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.
