Written by Delores Thomas
At the moment, that is the worst four letter word in the English language. Combined with this terrible cold, I and many others are restricted to indoors unless I can get door to door transportation. So I have spent my time cleaning, reading and watching television. My "spring" cleaning is done and I am bored with reruns. While seeking variety I discovered a story about Eskimos. They have nearly 100 words for snow: small flurries, large or small flakes, wind driven or softly floating. Much more than I really wanted or needed to know.
That did remind me that LOVE in the Bible has three meanings and three different words that are used in the Greek. When I checked Strong's Dictionary there was half a page of variations but we'll stick with the basics. Theo means to desire, want or choose. So remember you don't really love ice cream but it is desirable, especially chocolate. When you have affection for another the Greeks used the word Phileo. Then there is the beautiful word Agape which Strong defines as love feast. That is the word used for the love of God and our love for Him. But what caught my imagination is the idea of a love feast--the only feast we can never have too much of.
