Love

The beloved disciple, John, says, "God is love," and Paul's definition of Love is thus rendered in the Twentieth Century New Testament,—"Love is long-suffering and kind. Love is never envious, never boastful, never conceited, never behaves unbecomingly. She is not self-seeking, not easily provoked, nor does she reckon up her wrongs. She has no sympathy with deceit, but has full sympathy with truth. She is proof against all things, always trustful, always hopeful, always patient. Love never dies."

In his letter to the Corinthians Paul lays great stress upon the fact that, if the motive is not pure, if it is not an expression of love, all our efforts are vain. It is not what we give or say, but the motive back of it, which is determinative. Thus Jesus declared that one poor woman who gave but a mite contributed more than all others.
