By Firman Rianto


With increasing texting, our words are taking its place as sole medium to express our minds and hearts. The old tune becoming more current: “It’s only words; and words is all I have to take your hearts away.” Let us choose apt words to convey ourselves.


What is the difference?


These two words in the title are often seen as interchangeable. Yes, the two are a verb with object. Closer look shows they are a life apart. Here are definition of each,



find agreeable, enjoyable, or satisfactory.

love |ləv|

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.


When to use which?


It does not take you long to hear or see people expressing their love towards things that they have endure hardship for to obtain, e.g. I love my Lamborghini, I have endured years of hardship to get it. It seems as a fitting usage of the word ‘love.’ It does, cause it shows where the heart of that person is.


When that person goes to meet his maker, his “love” vaporise. All his bearing, believing, hoping, enduring for his Lamborghini appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.


Money and possessions are good; we should use them to make friendship that will usher us into eternal dwellings, those that will never vanish away. Although, if we love them, it is impossible to do.


Where does my heart lay?


The words you utter toward things is one indicator of where your heart is placed. More than that, your choices in life would speak louder.


You can like things and you should! All things were created by God and for him.

More vital is for you to love yourself and use them to usher you into eternal dwellings.

Love your neighbours as yourself.

Love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.


Love God, love people, like this article.
