“Love is desiring and taking action for the highest good of another. It can be expressed by who you are in Christ, by what you believe, by what you feel, by what you say, by what you do, by connection to God, by connection to others, by listening, by caring, by helping, by encouraging, by giving time, by giving money, by giving food and goods, by teaching, by forgiving everyone of everything continually, by praying, by self-sacrifice, by knowing, by loving presence, by acceptance, by goodwill, by faithfulness, by wisdom, by kindness, sometimes by anger, sometimes by rebuke, sometimes by taking drastic action to protect, by truth, by understanding, and by many other things…”
