"We pray for love for others, and God sends unique suffering by sending people our way who are difficult to love and who says things that get on our nerves and tear at our heart. He does this because Love is patient....it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always Preserveres. Love never fails."
(1 Corinthians 13:4-5, 7-8)
