True Love challenge

1.Have patience with imperfect people.

2. Be kind, active in doing good

3 & 4.Be nonpossessive (not demanding someone's total attention and love) and noncompetitive (not having a strong desire to be more successful than others), actually wanting other people to get ahead.
Hence do not parade yourself.

4.Don't be ostentatious (showy).

5. Don't treat others arrogantly

6. Don't behave rudely, instead display good manners and courtesy.

7. Don't seek your own, insisting on your own rights and demanding precedence; rather, be unselfish.

8. Don't be provoked; don't be irritable or touchy, rough or hostile, but be graceful under pressure.

9. Think no evil; do not keep an account of wrongs done to you; instead, erase resentments.

10. Don't rejoice in iniquity(immoral or grossly unfair behavior), don't find satisfaction in the shortcomings of others and in spreading an evil report; rather, rejoice in the truth, aggressively (bold, and energetic) advertising the good.

11. Bear all things, defending and holding other people up.

12. Believe the best about others, credit them with good intentions, and don't be suspicious.

13. Hope all things never giving up on people, but affirming their future.

14. Endure all things, persevering and remaining loyal to the end.
