    What is Love?

    by Ngozi Osuagwu, MD | February 14th, 2022

    What is Love?

    My husband and I were invited to several weddings last year and most of the invitations specified that they were adult-only affairs. This is quite different from when I was growing up when families were invited to weddings. I remember going to several weddings with my parents. Every wedding I went to always had someone reading 1 Corinthians 13:4 -8. I knew the meaning of love before I was an adult.

    February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. Teen dating violence is a serious – yet preventable public health problem in the United States. Unfortunately, one in four adolescents reports verbal, emotional, physical, or sexual dating violence each year. We can make a difference and as adults, we have a responsibility to teach our young people what it means to be in a healthy relationship.  I believe it starts with defining love.

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always perseveres. Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:4 -8)

    Let us be the example to our youth of what love looks like.  If there is a youth that needs help, please call 1-866-331-9474 or 800.787.3224 (TTY) or text ‘LOVEIS’ to 22522. For more information, please click here.
