How Would You Describe Love?

Feeding the homeless

Is love giving from abundance or sharing what little we have? Is it vulnerability? Does it require nothing or everything? Does love hide pain or enter into it? Can love be experienced without pain and risk? What do you think?

I would personally describe it as willing sacrifice. Men die for women they love and people they don't know. Mothers give their lives for their children. Anything we love requires the laying down of our life. Love is beyond feeling. It is commitment and sacrifice, regardless of the cost. I read a quote once that really brought the meaning of love home for me.
"Love is never wasted, for its value does not rest upon reciprocity". (Lewis) Our love given is not lost, because it makes us better.
