known by our love?

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” – Jesus

Is this how we are known? By our love?

By that love that is patient and kind; is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. By love that does not insist on its own way; is not irritable or resentful … that love?

The love without which I am nothing? … that love?

And must I show that love toward those who are ready to push their convictions down my throat?

Geez.
