Abuse Bibliography

Abuse, whether emotional, mental, physical, financial, sexual, or spiritual, is never love. Violence is selfish manipulation. It steals the victim’s self-worth and isolates them from family and friends. It lies, deceives, and betrays.

Friends, do you know how much Creator God loves and values you? I hope you’ll take the time to discover how important you are to Him.

So, let’s talk about what love is.

Love is kind, tender, patient, truthful, respectful, selfless, and humble. Love uplifts and encourages. It never tears a person down.

I’d like to encourage you to recognize the difference between what love is and isn’t and to seek help if you are in an abusive relationship.
