Attributes of God -- Day 25

Loving -- The attribute of God which causes Him to give Himself for another, even to the laying down of His own life.  This attribute causes Him to desire the other's highest good to His glory.  This love is not based upon the worth, response, or merit of the object being loved.

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying:
   “I have loved you with an everlasting love;
   I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
Jeremiah 31:3

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: 
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 
Romans 5:8

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 
1 John 4:8
