Love does no wrong to others, so love fulfills
the requirements of God’s law.
Romans 13: 10
The Bible tells us that the most important trait or characteristic for each of us is love.
The Apostle Paul wrote…
† So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13: 13
If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. I Corinthians 13: 3 – 7
What exactly is biblical love???
† Love is wanting what is best for, helping out, giving to and doing what will benefit another person regardless of whether you get anything out of it in return. Love will help out and do good for another person even when you don’t get the credit for doing it.
† Biblical love is not how you feel about someone but choosing to act in their best interest, even if it is a sacrifice for you.
† The opposite of biblical love is not hate – the opposite of biblical love is selfishness!
