i was just thinking maybe this would be the most accurate definition of love:

Giving life to others, at the expense of your own.

agreed?

Agape. = Unconditional love

Asking nothing in return. Not even equal regard as far as love. This sort of love is what Jesus gave to ALL MANKIND. The word says that " Yet while we were yet sinners, He died for us". I do not know to many of my enemies that I would die for, Yet Jesus did.

Read first Corinthians 13. It really does say it all?

Best part is that it the way God loves us.

1 John 3:16 (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?book_id=69&chapter=3&verse=16&version=31&context=verse)
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.
