A Love That Surpasses All Knowledge (A Biblical Definition of Love)

three-red-hearts-clipartWhen I was going through a rough time in my life several years ago, I started a study on the biblical definition of love.

That study started:

There is a verse in the Bible that virtually everyone knows – if not verbatim, at least they would recognize it when they heard it. Next to John 3:16, it is perhaps the best known verse in the Bible. It reads as follows:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. [1 Corinthians 13:4-8]

The point of this series, following some introductory articles, is to look at each aspect of love laid out in this verse.  Thus far, it includes the following posts:
