"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." -1 John 4:8
That verse above tells us that God is love.
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails." -1 Corinthians 13:4-8
1 Corinthians 13 tells us all about love and describes it for us.
If God is love, can't we just substitute "love" for "God"?
It comes out looking like this:
God is patient, God is kind. God does not envy, God does not boast, God is not proud. God does not dishonor others, God is not self-seeking, God is not easily angered, God keeps no record of wrongs. God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. God always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. God never fails.
Now isn't that description of God pretty much perfect? We have such a wonderful role model in our Savior!
Just wanted to share. :)
Have a great weekend, y'all!
