Love Never Fails
What do you think about when you think of love? Dating? Sex? Marriage? or maybe you think of things you love? Your Computer? Your phone? your car? These things are all great, but when you look at the bibles level of love, all these things fall short. It says in 1 Corinthians 13 v 4-6 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, 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.” This is the biblical bar for love. This is what love should aim for, and we will always fall short. But the great thing is that God doesn’t. It says in 1 John 4:8 ”Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” and if you put that verse in the context of the last verse I showed you that means that everything that love is, God is. You could even substitute the word love with the word God! and the fact is that God will not fail you, so therefore neither will love.
