Agape (love) denotes an undefeatable benevolence and unconquerable goodwill that always seeks the highest in others, no matter their behavior. It is love that gives freely without asking anything in return, and does not consider the worth of its object. Agape is more love by choice than philos, which is love by chance; and it refers to the will rather than the emotion. Agape describes the unconditional love God has for the world. Paul describes love in 1 Corinthians 13:4–8. Just as God shows us his agape (love), today let us engage in prayer, praise, or song to express love to God. Secondly, let us reach out to a family member or long-time friend or acquaintance to express agape to them. I Peter 4:8 (NKJV) says, “And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”
