Love has always been a complex concept. It is full of emotions, it is a state of ones being, ones choice, and ones ability.
It is empowering, and it lives in each and every one of us. Our heart is the part of its symbol that resides in us. And God our upmost father is the symbol of the heartful that reflects down here on Earth.
Love in the Bible, as in our everyday usage, can be directed from person to person or from a person to things. When directed toward things, it means enjoying or taking pleasure in those things.
