"Seeking the well-being of others"

Bill Hybels uses this as his definition for love:
Seeking the well-being of others.
We are so often tempted to use the world's love definition. Think about what 'love' means to you? I'm sure each of us has many connotations surrounding that word given to us by a life of worldly influences, some good, some bad.

But in Christ's most vivid example of 'loving neighbors', the Good Samaritan was 'seeking the well-being" of the injured man.

So next time you're wondering if you've loved, of how to love, or when to love, or why to love.. replace the word love with 'seeking the well-being' and try those questions again.
