What Is Love?

I was asked the other day in family relations what is love to me. I responded fast with the answer “Doing things for a person without questioning it or wanting something out of it and doing it for the benefit of them not you.” My teacher was pleasantly surprised because most people’s parents tell them growing up saying “Do not cross oceans for people that would not cross puddles for you!” To me that is not love. Not at all. No cross that ocean just do it. Love people, all people. No conditions attached, no weather or not they are worthy. Cross oceans climb mountains for those people. Live and love it is not about what you gain, it is about what you give. I have learned this really fast some say it is because I am growing up a christian and have loving parents but to an extent parents can only influence you so much. There is no perfect definition of love no one will ever have the same everyone is growing up or has grown up differently. Love is unconditional to an imperfect person. God gave each and everyone of us this definition when he sent is only son to die on the cross for the goodness of others and to me that was a perfect act.
