The sound of love is not true love in itself. It is an essential element, however. In fact “words of affirmation” are for some a love language. But our words, alone, are not enough to build a vibrant relationship upon.
Only the truth will set us free. Read Love Letter #1 for context.
“If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.” 1 Corinthians 13:1 MSG. Sounds like wisdom to me.
