Counterfeit Love

We all know love is something we cannot buy. Love is also something we cannot sell. And selfishness tells us it is something we can never have enough of. While our memories tell us love is something we can sometimes lose.

But do we know that love generated from ourselves is a mere counterfeit of God's love?

"...for love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of one’s house for love,
it would be utterly scorned."
-Song of Solomon 8:6,7
