At Light Bearer's ARISE program, I was taught that God is love. During one very meaningful class moment, we read through 1 Corinthians 13 replacing "love" with God. I think this is something everyone should do; for best effect, read the passage aloud.
God is patient and God is kind.
God does not envy; He does not boast and is not proud.
God does not dishonor others and He is not self-seeking.
God is not easily angered—He keeps no record of wrongs. God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
God always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
God never fails.
