LOVE defined by God is not based on feeling or desire, but on choice & sacrifice. you have to choose to be patient, kind, & forgiving. you have to make conscious decisions to forgive someone, to be honest, & not to give up. therefore, love is a choice. & the choice to love is a sacrifice. when you choose to love someone, instead of asking “what`s best for me?” you`re asking “what`s best for them?” in loving someone you have to give up your pride, your envy, your selfishness, your personal desires, & your own way to seek the best for them. this is why love would never hurt someone, love would never demand anything & love would never give up or walk away. love always has a servants heart & willing to do anything, even die for the beloved.
