Please read the following from ONE of the young, and wise relationship gurus Fred Gift Bupe Whitegod.
“Using several verses from a Bible chapter, I have come to realize the important concept of LOVE “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud…”
HERE is WHAT LOVE IS, and what is NOT!
1. Love is patient, and kind, NOT rude, hasty, or jealous. Someone who loves you should be patient with you, should be kind to you, shouldn’t be jealous [ I understand there has to be some sort of jealous in a relationship but there must not be jealousy in excess were it is applied even in small matters] a person who loves you shouldn’t be boastful about what he or she buys, or does for you, he or she shouldn’t be proud were he or she exalts himself, or herself above you and wants to do his or her own things without considering you. 1 Corinthians 13 :4
2. Love is Gentle, and humble, NOT rude, arrogant, or prideful. LOVE does not demand it’s own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. Someone who loves you shouldn’t be rude to you, shouldn’t demand to do things his or her own way but there has to be an agreement by both of you. Someone who loves you shouldn’t be upset with you easily; someone who loves you shouldn’t keep the records of your wrong doings… He or she should be able to forgive and forget, then you will know that it’s true love. 1 Corinthians 13 :5
When you continue to read on, the same chapter, the Bible clearly indicates other virtues of love that you can use to identify what true love is all about.. see, it’s not difficult to know what true love is, just look at how someone treats you and you will know whether he or she truly loves you or not.. for example, if your partner is always rude to you, keeps a record of every wrong thing you do, he or she isn’t kind and patient with you etc, that indicates that your partner doesn’t love you!
I love the word of God!!”
Thank you FRED, for shedding a light!
