Love is what we do.  It is not just a transient “warm fuzzy” feeling.  

Love is what God does for us.  His Son did not give up earthly prestige because we deserve it.  He loved us, because that is what he is:  “God is love.”

God loves you and he deeply loves the person you are “at odds with.”  Why?  Because I deserve it?  Because they deserve it?  He loves us because that’s just what he does…God is love.
