Definitions of Love: Practical Tips for Demonstrating Love as Family, Professionals, and Members of Society by Althea L. McMillan


Inspired by the teachings of I Corinthians 13, the poetry in Definitions of Love tells how important it is for everyone to demonstrate love.

If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love, I'm nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.

If I speak God's Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, "Jump," and it jumps, but I don't love, I'm nothing.

If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love, I've gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love. - I Corinthians 13

Now retired, Althea L. McMillan grew up in a very large family in a very small village, but was fortunate enough to have a mother who believed in education. She stressed that poverty is not a disgrace, only a setback.

Love never gives up.

Love cares more for others than for self.

Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.

Love doesn't strut,

Doesn't have a swelled head,

Doesn't force itself on others,

Isn't always "me first,"

Doesn't fly off the handle,

Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,

Doesn't revel when others grovel,

Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,

Puts up with anything,

Trusts God always,

Always looks for the best,

Never looks back,

But keeps going to the end. - I Corinthians 13

Definitions of Love: Practical Tips for Demonstrating Love as Family, Professionals, and Members of Society is a collection of poems based on I Corinthians 13. It is an inspiring read for everyone, including professionals, tradesmen, and family members.

Corinthians speaks of the importance of love and for everyone to demonstrate it. If you don't have love, you have nothing and are bankrupt without it.

Just as true love never dies or gives up, these poems will stay with you.

But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love. - I Corinthians 13
