Audio version read by Rev. Steven Lane Taylor, B.Msc.
And why is this such an important question? The reason is that love, above all else in life, is the single most important source of happiness, apart only from one’s relationship to God.
So many relationships and marriages end because one or both partners could not distinguish real love from imagined love. Real love is from the heart—from the very soul of a person—and it is lasting. In all relationships there are disagreements and bumps in the road in communication, but in the case of real love, such dips in a relationship do not diminish the love. Real love can override any temporary negativity between two people.
