What Love Really Is

What is love? We hear so much about love, but do we really know what love is? Real love? The Bible gives us a great guide of what love is in 1 Corinthians 13.

"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," 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.
