Mormon’s discussion of charity in Moroni 7:45, makes more sense when compared with Paul’s similar description of charity in 1 Corinthians. This makes it clear that charity is patient and kind, isn’t jealous, isn’t arrogant, doesn’t insist on getting his own way, isn’t easily upset, doesn’t hatch evil plots, doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in faithfulness, endures all abuse, never loses faith, is always confident, and remains patient no matter what happens. It also reveals that charity is both the love of God and the highest form of love people have for each other, which is how the word is used in the Book of Mormon.
