Love Never Fails!!!

Love, God's unconditional Love in us and through us is the answer to overcome all the disappointments, hurts, pains, setbacks, misunderstandings, and everything we experience in life that tend to give us a negative side-effect. Thank You, Father, for teaching me more and more each day, week, month, and year to Love unconditional as you have loved us. I am beginining to understand more and more why the greatest comandment is to Love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and the second greatest comandment is to Love my neighbor as myself. Thank You, Holy Spirit for teaching me and giving me understanding and the chance to show the proper application!!!

1 Corinthians 13 (NIV)


Love

1. If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.


4. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.



8. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10. but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.



13.And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
