“Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.” (1 Peter 3:8, NIV)
Whether in the human family into which we were born, or the spiritual family of God into which we both chose and were chosen; success depends on: (3) Displaying love for one another.
Arguably the best-known description of what love is — and is not — is found in 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13: “Love is patient; it is kind; love does not envy; it does not strut; it is not proud; love does not force itself on others; it isn’t always ‘me first’; it doesn’t fly off the handle; love doesn’t keep score of the offenses of others; it doesn’t revel when others grovel. . .” (Credit: New International Version and The Message translations)
Love is as love does. – Luther
