If you were to ask your friends what “love” is, what do you think they would say?

What do you think love is?  Has your view of love ever changed?


You are going to read a couple passages about Love today.  It’s a little more reading than normal, but you can handle it!

John 15:9-15

What can you learn about love from this passage?

What does it mean to love others the way Jesus loves us?



1 Corinthians 13 (it’s a short chapter just read it all)

How important does this chapter say love is to a Christians life?

Make a list of all the things this passage says love is. (Go ahead get a paper and make list)

Write in your own words what you think each characteristic of love means.

Which characteristics of love are easy for you to do?  Which ones are hard?  Do any of them not make sense?

Are there people in your life that it is hard to love this way?

Think about it

How is the way love is defined in what we read today different than the way most people would define love?


Who in your life is it hard to love this way?


How would our youth group be different if everyone treated each other like 1 Corinthians 13?


Do you think Christians are known for loving this way?  If not, why and can that be changed?
