The horrifying implication of love is that we will suffer on account of those we love. Most people can’t even verbalize what love is much less are willing to suffer for it. If finding love leads to pain and suffering, is love truly worth the cost? The message within these pages is meant to teach others what love is and that it is worth suffering for.
Dare to Love may be physically small in size, but its meaning is largely illuminating on a subject matter that can be quite intimidating and difficult to put into words. Focusing heavily on the Book of Hosea as well as his own personal struggles and findings, author Samuel Matthews sheds light on important facts such as how God is the only one who has expressed true love, those who suffer are the ones to understand and even find happiness in love, how to find the counterfeits of love and understand love’s true meanings, and more.
Love is a conscience choice to serve the best interest of others above your own. For those who are prepared to search for love regardless of the implications, you have officially been dared to love!
Samuel Matthews is an ordained Baptist reverend with a master’s from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Living in Clarksville, Tennessee, he currently serves his local church as a deacon, evangelist, Sunday school director and teacher, and leader of many church service projects. He likes to tell people that he is a terrible preacher because God only gave him one message about God’s love through the Book of Hosea, but if this is the only message he receives, he intends to wear it out as it holds value that is beneficial to share. This message can be found in Dare to Love, his debut book.
