Spiritual Tidbits (6) – What is love?

1 Corinthians 13:4: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8Love never fails…
13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

To be honest, I m not patient, I m not kind, but I do boast and is proud of my good argumentative skills *ah hem*. I also keeps a soft copy hash-map of wrongs done to me with anger and trembling (beware). I do not always protect anyone, not even Min Huey ( on that roller coaster at USS, she was protecting me), and I never have everlasting hope for anything.

My point is, if this is love, NONE of us qualified as love. Thank God there is ONE Jesus who not only imparts faith, gives hope, but also perfectly kept the conditions of TRUE love.

1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us. =)
