What Does Love Look Like?

So many people are confused about love. They think they know what it is, but really they don't. The following was written for someone who proved they didn't know what love was about.

I'll tell you the truth about love.

Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is not rude. Love is not puffed up. Love does not seek it's own (good). Love does not rejoice when it hears of other's shortfalls but rejoices in the truth. Love endures all things. Love believes all things. Love hopes.

Love looks like the friend that stays up until 3 in the morning talking to, and praying for the discouraged friend.

Love puts aside it's own feelings to help their friend who is grief stricken/broken hearted.

Love cares for the least. Love reaches out to the workplace outcast. Love talks to the person who no-one talks to. Love loves the unlovely.

Love forgives the "unforgivable".

Love protects. Love puts himself/herself between you and trouble.

Love defends a friend who's been shot.

Love doesn't leave when things get hard. Love doesn't leave at all. In fact love says, I don't care what you do or say, you can't make me stop loving you.

Love doesn't betray.

Love doesn't lead someone on. Love doesn't go around seeing how many hearts they can break.

Love is a refuge and a haven.

Love lays down it's life.

Love gives, and gives, and keeps on giving. Mostly in secret, but it can't be hidden, because love just keeps giving.

God is Love.

Love never fails.

Love the Least

I've decided to do some short posts of two line sort of wisdom instead of always having to have a long explanation. I figure I'm more likely to post then, and even though it is simple it's still good.

Love the least. - You never know what affect your actions will have. You probably won't see results immediately, and sometimes you may never see results, but do it anyway.

John 13:35 (NKJV)
By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
