Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up. It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful. It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things
1 Cor. 13:4-6 NET
The word “love” used here in this passage is from the Greek word agape.
It is used in scripture to define the love of God. It is not only used to define the love of God, it is used to define God. (I John 4:8). Agape reveals His person as well as his nature and modus operandi. We use the term love in a broad definition to define various emotions we feel. We use it to describe various degrees of emotional attachment to the different activities, objects, and persons we are involved with in our lives. But I want you to compare this biblical definition as to what love “is” and to what love looks like, with all your present relations and see if what you “feel” adds up to what God says love looks like. I am convinced that without God in your life, via the power of the Holy Spirit, that your version of love will not even be close to His version. Happy comparisons.
