Love is …

Listening with your heart
Seeking to understand why
Becoming the other person

Overlooking faults
Being open and honest

Love is Seeing the Other Side - KP Yohannan - Gospel for AsiaSharing in their need
Suffering when betrayed
Admitting faults and sin

Showing respect
Seeing the other side
Hoping through faith
Saying “no” and “you are wrong”

Valuing people for them, not what they do
Giving freedom to be themselves

Not intimidating
Being gentle
Soft words
Not jealous
Not arrogant
Not boastful
Being truthful and honest

Absence of fear
