Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;  it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.  1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

There are eight different greek words for love, and we experience each of them in a different way.  The greek word for the love God has for us, or the love a parent has for their child, is agape love.  It's the unconditional love we receive.  It's the love that is still there regardless of how badly we mess up or think we're unlovable.  It's the same type of love we strive for in our mentor/mentee relationships.  This love is the same love that's mentioned in the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians.  John and Zach kick off a new series this week where they explore how we can model the fruit of the spirit in our mentoring relationships, starting with love, and they share some truths around that topic.
