True Love Is Absolutely Virtuous
TRUE love is not wishy-washy or corrupted by lust and very, very few find it, because their animalistic, instinctual nature and its characteristics, particularly lust, deceive people into thinking that sex is love is love.
While absolute, true love is far from romantic, it's not without a touch of romance. Though neither is it, without a touch of "tough love".
God IS love and love is not religious, He is absolutely virtuous (righteous). ABSOLUTELY holy, peaceful, graceful, gracious, assertive, caring, charitable, compassionate, confident, considerate, cooperative, courageous, courteous, creative, determined, dignified, diligent, enthusiastic, flexible, forgiving, friendly, generous, gentle, helpful, honest, honorable, humble, idealistic, integral, joyful, kind, loyal, moderate, modest, orderly, patient, persevering, purposeful, reliable, respectful, responsible, self-disciplined, tactful, thankful, tolerant, trusting, trustworthy, truthful, understanding and wise.
Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man's devising.Acts 17:29
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you MAY be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.2 Peter 1:2-4
And because lawlessness (unvirtuousness) will abound, the love of many will grow cold.Matthew 24:12
Absolute, true love is supernatural and absolutely divine, and when it comes upon you, in absolute, supernatural power and glory, sends you head over heels, sweeps you off your feet, and fills you with the absolute, heavenly bliss of God's (True Love's) absolute holiness, peacefulness, gracefulness and graciousness, which is literally and absolutely, beyond your wildest imagination.

Virtue of the Week
Characteristic of the lion
Practicing justice is being fair. You don't prejudge. You see people as individuals. You don't accept it when someone acts like a bully, cheats or lies. Being a champion for justice takes courage. Sometimes when you stand for justice, you stand alone.
It is a joy for the just to do justice, but destruction will come to the workers of iniquity.Proverbs 21:15
