          Meaning what?!  For what you say I understand you know nothing about love. All your words are sooo shallow, all ready made phrases that don't mean a thing in real life.  BTW,Why don't you get one? Is good and healthy big_smile

        you're not thinking at all! What about you giving your love to somebody (your child, friend, husband, etc) and even all that love given this person commits crimes,  big mistakes etc,. It happens all the time! Wouldn't you have failed, even all that love you gave ?

        atomswifeyposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        But thats not you failing, you did not commit the crimes. Acting in love sometimes means to act on discipline, instruction and with wisdom.
        Giving love and acting in love are two different things. For example: I am acting in love when I discipline my child. I love him so much that I want for him to be instructed and corrected so that he learns the right ways to behave and act. I have not failed if he then, decides to commit a crime etc. I acted in love and did the right thing for him. He would be the one to have failed to heed that instruction etc. get my point?

        The same is true for friends, family, spouses etc. We can act in love by instructing them, offering advice, and maybe if they commit crimes, using a bit of "tough love" and turning them in to get help or to be punished. In either event it would not be you, your love or your act of love which would have failed.

        My friend says:
        Love has boundaries and in love does not allow the boundaries of love to be broken.
        Love continues to love while boundaries are kept like one guards a home of love.
        Love holds to justice and peace, administered in the wisdom of love.
        If one that has been shown love turns and acts outside of love, the only thing that love will do to draw them back is love.
        If that one still rejects love, then love will keep the boundaries of love.
        Love is not responsible for those who do not act in love after they have come of age.
        Love is going to love them and allow them to be accountable for their actions while continuing to love them at all times.

    If you mean selfless love,agape love(that is love with out condition) Then no you can't fail...the outcome may not be the one you desire, but love has to do with the action not the outcome. If that makes sense.

    It might depend upon how you define love. If you define it as 'acting within God's will' you cannot fail in His eyes. If you don't know His will, you may fail. You may appear to fail to the world if they do not understand His will.

    It's a hard question, especially since you have given no specifics.

      That the only will one should posses is the will to love and love motivates the will do all things out of love. When the will becomes one with love then the will is consumed in love and the 2 cannot be separated.

    My friend says:
    Love has no need to attain a title.
    Love is not concerned with it's place.
    For nothing is greater than love, love is not a title.
    Love does not seek to attain for itself, rather love desires to give.
    One can spend a lifetime seeking titles and gain them, yet have no love.
    When one is about to pass away, they do not wish they had a greater title.
    Love does not pass away, but endures forever.

    "Love is patient; love is kind and envies no one. Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude; never selfish, not quick to take offense. Love keeps no score of wrongs; does not gloat over other men's sins, but delights in the truth. There is nothing love cannot face; there is no limit to its faith, its hope, and its endurance. ... In a word, there are three things that last forever: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of them all is love."

    So dear friend Shyloh can go on now with his preaching, toying with discourses of old and speaking in the third person, the person of majesty. We might be witnessing a new reincarnation of the man from Tarsus, how so very interesting.
