IF ONLY WE WOULD ALL LIVE WHAT LOVE IS.
I Corinthians 13: 1-13
1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
LOVE IS: 4-7
Not jealous or boastful–
Not arrogant or rude–
Does not insist on its own way–
Is not irritable or resentful–
Does not rejoice at wrong–
Rejoices in the right–
Bears all things–
Believes all things–
Endures all things.
8 Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; 10 but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood. 13 So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
WE MUST BE THE EXAMPLES–
and LIVE WHAT LOVE IS.
“So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
