there are many definitions of love. it can be a noun or a verb. it can be an intense feeling or a fleeing thought. love is also a choice. especially when we are called to love our enemies.
but a new concept of love, to me: love is an ability. I like this description because it means we are able to be taught how to love. love may not come easily for some (and too easy for others) but the good news: we can all learn to love, correctly. pick an attribute below and build your ability to love each other as God intended.
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLT)
