The Holy Spirit’s idea of love – is it yours?

Posted on October 15, 2013 · Posted in Fear of the Lord

His love cannot be eaten, will not wilt, cannot be bought, cannot be lost or stolen.

It is yours to give as it has been given to you. There is no better gift! Give this gift to your spouse and then to your children. When others ask why you love this way, tell them that Someone loved you first.

 

Love is patient.

Love is kind.

Love does not envy.

Love does not boast.

Love is not proud.

Love is not rude.

Love is not self-seeking.

Love is not easily angered.

Love keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

Love always protects.

Love always trusts.

Love always hopes.

Love always perseveres.
