Love must be unconditional and that is what the birth of Christ teaches us. It is easy to love someone, who loves us in return. According to Corinthians (13:4—8a), we are looking at love, which is patient and kind, love which does not envy or boast, it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.
