What Happens When You "Fall" in Love?

This morning, my daughters and I were listening to a sermon they talked about Biblical love and what it is. You always hear, from the world's perspective, about "falling" in love and "falling" out of love. Marriages starting and stopping because two people fell into and out of love. But what does God say about love? While we were talking about the world's view, I asked them, "What happens when you fall?" My youngest daughter said, "You get hurt." I said, wow, you are so right. Anytime you FALL, you get hurt. And falling in love you will be no different, you will get hurt. God says that love is an action. If you LOVE someone you will be

"...patient, kind, not envious, not boastful, not proud, not rude, not self-seeking, not easily angered, you will keeps no record of wrongs, you will not delight in evil but rejoice with the truth, you will always protect, always trust, always hope, always persevere."

So you see, there is no room for "falling" in and out of love with someone. Thank you, Hannah, for your insight.
