The Opposite of Love is Pride

Pride is the opposite of Love for Pride is esteeming self above others, while Divine Love calls us to love our neighbor as ourselves. It should be interesting to see how a reversal of Love’s qualities as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 13 would look like on Pride.

Pride does not suffer long and is not kind;
Pride envies;
Pride parades itself,
Is puffed up;
Behaves rudely,
Seeks its own,
Is provoked (touchy and fretful),
Thinks evil (keeping record of wrong done to it);
Rejoices in iniquity, but does not rejoice in the truth;
Never bears anything,
Never believes anything,
Never hopes anything,
Never endures anything.
Pride always fails.
