Here is how one writer describes love: It is complete acceptance, completely unconditional, and selfless. The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 13, that love is patient and kind; not jealous or boastful or proud; does not demand its own way; is not irritable, keeps no records of wrong; never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. He also said, “Don’t just pretend to love each other. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them. Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all. Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.” It’s clear that love is not just something you feel; it’s something you do.
