Love is best seen as devotion and action, not an emotion. Love is not exclusively based on how we feel. Certainly our emotions are involved, but they cannot be our only criteria for love. True devotion will always lead to action—true love.
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with ACTIONS and in truth.
I John 3:18 (NIV)
Someone that says, “I love you” and just gives you words with NO ACTIONS is not TRUE LOVE. Nor is it how God planned us to love one another.
Christ was devoted to us enough to give his own life for us (Romans 5:8), even when he didn’t feel like it (Matthew 26:39).
