What is Love?

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.” (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13‬:‭4-8‬ ESV)

This is the beautiful and true definition of love. Love is not merely the emotional feeling and affection we see portrayed by Disney entertainment. There is so much more depth to true biblical love. 

When the Bible teaches us to love our brother and love our neighbor, this verse descrbes what that love looks like. It is both the emotional feeling and affections plus patience, kindness, humility, understanding, peaceful, and forgiving. 

Our Lord Jesus practiced this love perfectly. 

Think about how you can better love God and others today.
