H136 - LOVE BEARS ALL THINGS - 1 CORINTHIANS 13:7
" It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." - 1Cor 13:7
God's kind of love is directed outward toward others, not inward toward ourselves. It is utterly unselfish. This kind of love goes against our natural inclinations. It is possible to practice this love only if God helps us set aside our own desired and instincts, so that we can give love while expecting nothing in return. Thus the more we become like Christ, the more love we will show others.
