love is (choosing to be) kind

What does the Bible mean that “love is kind“?

Paul begins to paint a picture of love’s qualities, and one of the first strokes of his brush reveals that love is kind.

Kindness is noted as part of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). Love is also in the list, revealing the close connection between love and kindness. Living a life of love marked by kindness is one aspect of living in a way that pleases God.

Kindness is characterized by benevolence and tenderness. A kind person is disposed to help others and to do so with sympathy and consideration. Godly love will make a person kinder. No one can be loving and unkind at the same time.
