Proverbs 10:12 - Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all transgressions.  Whose keeping the strife stirred up, and whose keeping the love  flowing?  You know who the lover and the hater are, just by simply looking at what they do - at their actions. Love is trying desperately to cover up & forgive the transgressions or sins.  Hate is trying equally hard to keep strife, anger, malice, and bitterness stirred up.  Love will WIN in the end.  Love just has to hold on with all its might.  

LOVE DOES NOT HATE.  The two are polar opposites.  Hate cannot love - and love cannot hate.  There is NO WAY you can do both at the same time - to ANYONE.  You either LOVE everyone.........or you HATE everyone.   

1 Peter 4:8 - Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.  Love is a very powerful thing.  

1 Corinthians 13: 4-13 - Love is patient - patiently waiting for those they love to come to Christ. Patiently waiting for that lost love to come back to them.

Love is kind

Love envies no one - is not jealous of anyone

Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude - love doesn't have to brag, love is not full of itself, and it is NEVER rude

Love is never selfish, not quick to take offense - Love gives of itself willingly, chooses others over itself.  Love doesn't get offended easily.

There is nothing love cannot face - ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

Love has no limit to its faith - Love holds on to faith when all seems to be crumbling around it.

Love is hope, and endurance.

In a word, there are three things that last forever: faith, hope, and love.

But the greatest of them all is love.

When someone finds THIS love, they then HAVE the greatest gift of all.  

When someone finds another to love them like the above passages - then they have RECEIVED the greatest gift of all.

When someone can give that same love in return - then they can GIVE the greatest gift of all.

My desire for all who read this, is that they too, can HAVE, RECEIVE, AND GIVE the greatest gift of all.

Have a blessed evening.
