“Love does not Brag and is not Arrogant”

1 Corinthians 13:4

The other word in this verse focuses on pride and arrogance. The Greek word literally means “puffed up.” In 1 Corinthians 8:1, Paul uses this word again, contrasting it with love: “Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.”

In your actions, do you simply puff up people to make yourself look good? Or do you genuinely desire to build up those around you?
