The word “charity” is used for the God kind of love.
Nothing is of any worth if the motive of the word or action does not flow from the God kind of love. This kind of love is agapao which means unconditional love given as an unchangeable decision or choice.
This is the kind of love that caused God to send His Son into the world to sacrifice Himself for the benefit of whosoever will receive Him as Lord and Savior.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (KJV)
Believers in Christ Jesus are commanded to walk in the God kind of love toward all mankind. This love is one that covers a multitude of sin without giving license to sin.
This love will go to any extreme to turn a sinner to Christ in order to reconcile him to God and save him from the eternal punishment of hell. It will risk relationships and profit to share this love with those who have never experienced it.
Motive is everything. The God kind of Love never fails.
