What is love? Do we have love? Yes, sometimes we have. But we only have conditional love. If others do good to us, we love them; if they do bad to us, we hate them. If our children obey to us, we love them; if our children contradict, we feel sad and loving them is so hard. Our love always start and end, can't be continuous.
But the love of God is different from us. God told to us Love is patient. But we can be patient for one time, 2 times, 3 times is the peak, never say 7 times. God told to us love is kind. But we can just be kind to the people who are kind to us. God told to us love does not envy, but when we see others are better than us, we are not happy in our heart, even hate them. God told to us love does not boast, love is not proud. But when we get a little achievement, we want to show to the people in the world. God told to us love does not dishonor others, but how much dishonor things we have done and thought nodody will know. God told to us that love is not self-seeking, but in front of benefit, we only think about ourselves. God told to us that love is not easily angered, but we always angry for any little things. God told us that love keeps no record of wrongs, but we always love to keeps record of wrongs even when they offend us. God told to us that love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth, but we always want to be close to the evil and reject the truth.
God told us that love always protects, always tursts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. They are all we are lack of. God know the nature of us.
But how we can get the ability of love of God? No other way! Just accept the love from God. When you are full of God's love, the love will overflow to others.
Real love never fails!
