The Difference Between Love And Infatuation..

Dear Beloved, Please Can You Explain The Difference Between Infatuation And Love Because Most Of Us Don’t Seem To Know The Difference? Thank You!!!
Let Me Start By Giving You The Oxford Definition Of Both Words; INFATUATION Has Been Defined As “1. Inspire With Intense Usually Transitory Fondness And Admiration. 2. Affect With Extreme Folly; While LOVE Has Been Defined As “1. Deep Affection Or Fondness. 2. Admire; Greatly Cherish; Delight In”.

From These
Dictionary Meanings, It’s Already Clear That Infatuation Is Transitory (Short-Lived) And Also Extremely Foolish. When You Are Infatuated With Someone, You Are Almost Obsessed With That Person; You See Yourself Stupidly Misbehaving Around Him/Her; You Think Of Him/Her All The Time, Create All Sorts Of Sexual Fantasies About That Person. The Bible Calls This Feeling LUST Because It Is Negative In Nature.

On The Other Hand, Love Is A Deep Affection For Someone. It Shows That You Greatly Cherish, Admire, And Delight In That Person. I Like The Word “DEEP” Because Love Is Not A Shallow Feeling And Cannot Spring Up Suddenly. The Bible Commends This Feeling Because Of Its Positive Nature And Gave Us Its Characteristics In 1 Cor.13:4-7.

Infatuation Comes Quickly And Fades Quickly Too But Love Builds Slowly And Lasts Long.

Remain Richly Blessed..
