Love is patient. Love is kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong doing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
-1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Years ago, someone that I respect greatly told me that if you could replace the word "love" with the name of another person and all the statements were still true than it was true God-honoring love. I just thought that was a cool way to define "love."
