True Love

Church was the place where I was raised,
Where worship, prayer, and fun times abounded;
They first believed in me when others were confounded,
So church also refers to the people with whom I was amazed.

I got opportunities to participate, feel included, and even in leading
Units such as A/V, cell groups, and praise teams;
I went from a shy, reclusive boy lacking self-esteem
To a confident individual who no longer is petrified of public speaking.

But why am I revealing the above on this wall?
It’s to demonstrate the love that they have shown;
Storge, eros, philia, and agape are some examples known:
Which one is the best of all?

What is true love? Can it be understood?
1 Corinthians 13:4–8 may provide some hints,
But John 3:16 reveals everything in print;
That’s ultimately why Good Friday is good.
