What is love?

What is Love?

Love is patient
It is not hurried
love is kind
It is not harsh, rough or hurtful
It does not envy
It knows no other Gods
it does not boast
but only in Christ
it is not proud
It is humble
It is not rude
It is polite, refined and civil
it is not self-seeking
It is thoughtful and compassionate
it is not easily angered
it is understanding and sympathetic
it keeps no record of wrongs.
it forgives
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
Jesus is the truth
It always protects
 never endangers
always trusts
never doubts
always hopes
never fears
always perseveres.
Love never fails.
It always succeeds.
