Biblical charity (Love) is long-suffering it endures all the hardships life throws at us.
It is never about self (egotistical) nor used in a condescending manner (putting others down).
Here is a tough one true biblical charity is not easily provoked (anger issues anyone) and never thinks evil of anyone (ouch).
The Apostle Paul in his first letter to the church at Corinth new all to well the need for Biblical Charity coupled with humility.
Paul was a “great Apostle” although during his time it may not have seemed so, today we can clearly make a case for such. Yet here he says:
Although I have all these great gifts bestowed upon me by God; without Charity I AM NOTHING.
To be certain I am not an advocate of Christians are all about “love” and only love nonsense where “christians” (yes I used a small c) are supposed to be pacifist wimps. READ THE BOOK, Jesus was a real man, a Carpenter by trade no small task in His day, He cleared His Fathers house with a whip, and called out the ruling class “Woe unto you” numerous times. Are we not, when times are appropriate, to be like Jesus? He did all these and never sinned because He did them with righteous judgement and Love (Charity).
