The Personality Of Love

When there is a police investigation, the police usually call on a forensic specialist to tell them what kind of person they need to be looking for. Tina Turner had a famous song that asked “What’s love got to do with it?” I want us to consider how important our personality is when dealing with each other.

1 Corinthians 13 is known for it’s sentiment on love and is often used during weddings and anniversaries to express our love for someone else. There are even times when it’s put to music.  The Apostle Paul even went on to argue that love is more about “action” than “emotion.”  Love is not so much how we feel, but what we do.

1 Cor 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.

You can tell someone how much you love them, but can you show them? If not, then you are just making a lot of noise.  Paul then goes on to summarize it verse 2, “Without it (love) I am nothing.”

Additionally, love can defined as an attitude or behavior.

1 Cor 13:4-7 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

So let us adopt these things to ourselves to love others as we should and make the world a better place to live in.
