It’s the love month, and one can already feel all the love vibes wafting through the air as couples enjoy the blessing of love.

Love is a beautiful blessing. Without love the world would not be in existence. I strongly believe love holds the world together and without it, everything we know would come off the seams.

I wrote an article about Women Who Died For Love In History, Literature And Folklore. These courageous and brave women through the ages gave up their lives for the sake of love. For some it was love for family, men, husbands, lovers, work, beliefs, faith etc.

I’m following that article up with a post on Men who died for love. Contrary to popular media portrayal, men love deeply and many men have died for love too.

Some of these men have laid down their lives for their faith, friends, their wives, lovers, women, work, beliefs etc. 

Of course I will start with the Greatest Man of All. The Man who laid down his life on an accursed cross for me, you and the whole world. The Man Jesus Christ who once said:

13 No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:13
