A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8-year-olds, “What does love mean?” The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined:

“Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.” Karl- age 5 “Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss.” Emily-age 8 “Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.” Mary Ann-age 4 And the final one—Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child. The winner was a four-year-old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. Later when his mother asked him what he had said to the old man, the little boy said, “Nothing, I just helped him cry.”

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (I Corinthians 13:13)
