Everywhere we turn, we’re bombarded with “Love.” Movies, TV shows, music, apps, social media, books, culture… it seems like everyone has thoughts they want to share with us about love. Offering advice, dealing out gossip, even trying to sell us stuff. It’s like that old saying:
“Love is all around us.”
Of course we all want love. If you’re really lucky, you find it with family. Or with friends. We all want someone we can love who will love us back equally (maybe even some-one in particular). But:

A teacher of the law once asked Jesus what one thing was the most important. Jesus answered him with two things, and in this order: “Love God,” then “love other people.” (Matthew 22:36-40)
