We grow in love slowly

"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant  or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;  it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."
( 1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

"God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us."  ( Romans 5:5)
