Why a Teenage Crush isn’t really True Love

“True love” is a term that we hear in movies, songs, and even on the playground. But this idea can lead girls to think their teenage crush is actually #couplegoals, movie-scene, “true love”.  

But rather than “true love”, they’re experiencing infatuation and large doses of “like”. Their understanding of love is rooted only in enjoyable emotions or physical feelings, allowing it to come and go like the tide. Certainly not a lasting foundation for a life-long relationship.  

Our girls can turn to Scripture for guidance. There they will find a different view of True Love—one where True Love is from God. Understanding God’s design for love is crucial to seeing how true love, patient and kind, leads to a strong marriage and remains rooted in sacrifice for the whole. 

1 Corinthians 13:4
