Love is a commitment. It is not a feeling.
The Bible teaches us that LOVE bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things (1 Cor. 13:7, NASBV). In essence, love believes in the best.
When dealing with people who have the potential to annoy you or piss you off, second-guesses or vain imaginations will inevitably enter your head. Because of this, we need to take responsibility over what enters our minds. We cannot be lazy with our thoughts because they are deceitful. We need to be disciplined by controlling what we believe in. Anyone can believe anything that's not true and still have those ideas affect their feelings that will eventually dictate their behavior. The last thing we want in our life is disunity, tension, and conflicts. We were made for relationships and loving the way Christ loves can only change the way we live around people.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.
Genuine Christianity is to keep on loving and to believe in the best.
