You know something? Agape is the Greek word that refers to the love God has for his children and the love a mother or father has for his or her children. Wikipedia cites that the OED says the following: "Agape is one of the Greek words that translates into English as love, one which became particularly appropriated in American Christian theology as the love of God or Christ for mankind."
Agape is also the exact Greek word for charity. Charity is love. English muddles it into a lot of other definitions, but that's what it is.
1 Corinthians 13:1: Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
We're nothing without love.
We are, by no means, the perfect example of perfect sisterhood. But at least this kid and I have this whole love thing down. I can't imagine my life without her. Photo credit: Ben.
