Here is what love does.
Read:1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
8 Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!
Do your best to bring the best out of your friends and loved ones.

Read: Isaiah 43:25
I, even I, am he who blots out
your transgressions, for my own sake,

his offer would be utterly scorned.
Love is brave. There is no fear in love.
Read: 1 John 4:18

Read: Romans 8: 35, 37
Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?
No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
When everyone rejects you, He accepts you just as you are.
