Love Without Hypocrisy

By Rev Dr Gordon Wong

A Romans 12 Christian seeks to love genuinely without conditions attached or hidden agendas, as the core principle of Christian living. It is a love that does not seek personal gain, but to offer honor, recognition, appreciation, value and understanding; that is being done out of esteem, awe, admiration and wonder towards the receiver. It should not just be mere words, but done through actions that are unpretentious. Being real.

1. What is society’s typical view of love and how is love usually seen to be expressed?  Who do you usually express love to and how do you show this love?

If so, what can you do?
