1 Corinthians 13:4-8

"Love is patient.
Love is kind
Love isn't jealous.
It doesn't sing its own praises.
It isn't arrogant.
It isn't rude.
It doesn't think about itself.
It isn't irritable.
It doesn't keep track of wrongs.
It isn't happy when injustice is done.
It is happy with the truth.
Love never stops being patient.
Never stops believing.
Never stops hoping,
Never gives up.
Love never comes to an end!"
I Love . . .Love!!!
God's kind of love is directed outward toward others,
not inward toward ourselves.
It is utterly selfless!
This kind of love goes against our natural inclinations.
It is possible to practice this love only if God helps us
by setting aside our own desires and instincts,
so that we can give love while expecting nothing in return.
So the more we become like Christ,
the more love we will show to others.
