Allow me to explain before we go any further! Webster’s dictionary describes love like this:
Function: noun. 1 : a quality or feeling of strong or constant affection for and dedication to another <motherly love> 2 a : attraction based on sexual desire : the strong affection and tenderness felt by lovers b : a beloved person : DARLING.
Highlighted are words that if we focus on add to the pit falls and confusion on Real Love : “quality-feelings-constant affection, attraction based on sexual desire”!
Jermaine ‘JwilMusic’ James chooses to display a unorthodox portrait of Love visually that most aren’t as familiar with when it comes to how Marriage and Love is presented! In this this video we don’t see a lot of kissing, rolling around in a bed or anything that would focus on attraction but more so connection.
We see 2 individuals sit apart from each other, then reading in the same place, to eventually together. Then we see they began to eat together share laughs, share a few intimate moments and all this without 1 sex scene.
(1 Corinthians 13-4-7)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Now days people desire THE APPEARANCE of Love without the process and sacrifice that Real Love requires! Social media has fed us “goals” and made us lazy, because while we have access to people on a scale that’s almost unlimited we have been allowed to skip the process of relationship that builds understanding that generates loyalty to what’s on the inside instead of what’s on the surface.
This is why we see the fashion, hair and make up industry booming while divorce rates sky rocket ! We have been conditioned to focus so much on what’s on the outside that when anything appears hard or challenges our emotions and the Ugly part of love comes out people aren’t prepared and many relationships fail because of conflict or lack of loyalty to growth!
Most people who have been hurt were hurt not because the other person did it intentionally but because they weren’t prepared and due to the lack of skill for a particular situation people are broken!
Jermaine talks about how Real Love isn’t captured on a Instagram post, that it’s deeper than the expectations television fed us and how false information has perverted the true nature of what love was given to the world to be <GIVEN to the world- peep the revelation> but I digress!
The song is special because Jermaine doesn’t allow the assumptions of what his faith is supposed to look and sound like to allow him to conform his content to the parameters of a faith based culture that is afraid (generally speaking) to embrass and talk about real life issues in real ways!
Love is the most powerful calling on earth but we have allowed the world to Redefine something that predates everything, love predates every situation because love prevails all things !
Enjoy this song and let love clean your heart, filter your speech and guide your intentions!!!
