What if we looked at 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 from the reverse angle? I think it helps us put so much of our pettiness and self-interest in stark perspective and shows love as that much more beautiful.
Impatience and unkindness is hatred. Hate is envious and ego-centric. Hate is arrogant and rude. Hatred is insisting on one’s own way; hatred is irritable or resentful; it celebrates sin, and it mocks what is true. Hate is whiny and thin-skinned, thoroughly skeptical, always pessimistic, a born quitter.
