What is Love?

With all due respect to Haddaway, the following shot is one answer to that question,


Michael Conroy/Associated Press

No, I’m not saying that Michael Jordan looking like he’s at a revival is love.

Rather, him rocking that Illinois polo is love, a father’s love. Before achieving basketball immortality in the NBA, Jordan played ball at North Carolina. There, he won a national title under the tutelage of the coaching great Dean Smith.

Yet, because his boy is a reserve player on the University of Illinois team, Jordan forgets Carolina blue to support his son by sporting Illinois orange.

Boy, I don’t know, if our son were to attend OU (or A&M), and miraculously (you see, the genetic deck is stacked against him) play basketball there, could I set aside my burnt orange to sport crimson or maroon?

Blasphemous as it might be in Longhorn Nation, I wouldn’t even think twice.

Seriously though, what is love? This is love:

Not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. – 1 John 4:10

    I hate to pour water on this, but Michael Jordan should have shown love to his son by treating his wife, his son’s mother, better.

    I didn’t cover Ace of Base(s)… Maybe Jordan saw the sign?

    Common grace can only take human beings so far, right?

    Yes, that is 100% true. However, I should point out that even unsaved people have refrained from being the real creeps towards their spouses that Michael Jordan was towards Juanita. Of course, the media, bent on promoting this fellow, never discussed what he put that woman through.
