What Love Does

Love looks for the best; bitterness assumes the worst.

Love lets people off the hook; self-righteousness ensures they don’t get away with it.

Love seeks to understand; selfishness seeks to be understood.

Love resolves a matter privately; arrogance posts it on Facebook.

Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.” (Proverbs 10:12, ESV)

Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends.” (Proverbs 17:9, ESV)

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.” (1 Corinthians 13:4–8, ESV)
