day no. 13,140: i love because You first loved me, i live because You live‏

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient, love is kind.
Love does not envy,
is not boastful, is not conceited,
does not act improperly,is not selfish, 
is not provoked, and does not keep a record of wrongs.
Love finds no joy in unrighteousness, 
but rejoices in the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love does some stuff.
Love does not do some other stuff.
Love is something.
Love is not some other things.
If the Spirit is in us, He urges us to love and we desire to be more loving.
These verses present us with the challenge to orient and discipline ourselves to be loving in the image of the One who lovingly made us.
We must see and marinate in the hope of His love for us: a love perfectly defined and faithfully perfect as described above.
