Love Versus Lust

One who holds the elements of true love (based on 1 Corinthians 13 and 1 John 4) is:
  • Patient
  • Kind
  • Non-envious 
  • Humble
  • Couth (not obnoxious or obsessed)
  • Unselfish/Servile
  • Even-tempered
  • Pure-minded
  • Righteous-loving
  • Honest
  • Unfearing
  • Perfect (in God alone)
  • Eternal
  • God-- all good and perfect relationships of any sort include God
Lust, my friend, is the opposite of these characteristics: 
  • Impatience
  • Meanness
  • Envy/Competition
  • Arrogance
  • Obsession
  • Selfishness
  • Bad Temper
  • Lewd Mind
  • Love of Wrong-doing
  • Deceit
  • Fear
  • Imperfection/Self-consciousness
  • Temporary
  • No Divine Strength
