There is more than one way to say LOVE. The Greeks had at least eight different ways to say love, and those eight words are as follows: Agápe, Éros, Ludus, Mania, Philautia, Philía, Pragma, and Storgē.
Whatever is certain. Whatever is meaningful. Whatever is beautiful. Whatever brings you joy. Whatever makes you happy. Whatever is best for you. Think about all of that throughout the remainder of your holiday.
Love doesn’t get any nobler than agápe. There is no doubt that agápe is the highest kind of love there is. No other type of earthly love can come close to God’s unconditional, self-denying, long-suffering, kind, and supportive type of love.
My Father’s Day prayers are for those fathers who sacrificed their lives so that others might have freedom; to those fathers who became fathers to fatherless children, regardless of the reasons why those children found themselves fatherless (having no living father, or having no known or legally responsible father); to those fathers who while balancing the demands of marriage, children, and work joyfully and sincerely accepted their responsibility to make sacrifices for their children; to those fathers who, despite divorce, remained in all of their children’s lives; and to those fathers who continued to offer love and support to their grown children.
