I'm still thinking about what love is to look like according to a biblical standard. Here's an all-time favorite quote:
"Go forth and be loving. Let your heart be as large in its creature capacity as God's heart is in its divine. If He has a large heart for you, beware of a small heart for your fellow man. If His heart is open, see that yours is not closed. And since He does not depart at our sinfulness, ingratitude, injury, or unworthiness, be imitatiors of God (Ephesians 5:1,2). 'Be not overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.' (Romans 12:21) God has so dealt with you, overcoming and winning your evil heart with goodness and love of His own. Go and do likewise towards all who have injured you, wounded you, and despitefully used you..." Octavious Winslow, Our God, pg. 16
