Agape love delights in giving attention, rather than attracting it.
Agape love finds the element of good and builds on it and does not magnify defects.
It is a flame that warms, but never burns.
Agape love knows how to disagree without becoming disagreeable.
Agape love rejoices at the success of others instead of being envious.
Agape love is possible only through yielding completely to the Holy Spirit
since it is the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).
Out of love come other needed qualities for success in the Christian life:
joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Agape love is worth pursuing moment by moment.
I have only just a minute,
Only sixty seconds in it.
Forced upon me-can't refuse it.
But it's up to me to use it!
I must suffer if I lose it,
Give account if I abuse it.
Just a tiny little minute,
But ETERNITY IS IN IT!
