Is love a habit?

Re: Verse reading–Proverbs 17:17; 1 John 4:7-21 (day six)
“Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”  (1 John 4:11)  Is love a habit?  With time and training (from the Spirit) can the human soul become predisposed to unselfish service toward others?  We are mid way through a summer study series called, “14 HABITS of Highly Effective Disciples.”  Our topic this week is love.  So. . .what do you think?  The Bible presents love as the expression of worship.  Since God loves us, we should love others.  Familiar Biblical, moral argument.  John’s version. What God is, we should be!  If He is holy, we should be holy!  If He loves, we have an obligation to do so as well!  It goes to the heart of worship–to honor God, to acknowledge Him in all that we do and think, gradually reshapes us into His image.  The real habit is worship.  (See lesson 14).  Love is the best proof.  Habit forming.  God, please!
