Christian love is the pursuit of your happiness alongside of my own, and even as a means to my own.
We are prone to think too highly of ourselves and too little of others, but genuine love will magnify others at the expense of self.
Love takes pleasure in, and pursues the good of others. Envy cannot do that.
Kindness is what love does because it delights in the happiness of others.
Patience is the quality in
Christian love that is able to hold up under the weight of others’ offenses.
