1 John 3:18
Let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.
When we feel loved by another person, the world and its pressures are more tolerable and manageable, because we know that someone actually cares about us and is willing to go out of his or her way to help us feel loved… Love is a Biblical mandate that is foundational to a successful marriage. You choose to love someone else. It’s a commitment of your will. Affection goes a step beyond love. Affection takes the loving relationship between a man and a woman in marriage into the deeper realm of tender expressions that result in feelings of closeness, passion, and security.
