Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8,13 NKJV
Love is patient and kind.
Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
It does not demand its own way.
It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.
It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. …Love will last forever!
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13: 4-8,13 NLT
Live It Out:
To really love like this one would need to be born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, for mankind is not naturally loving to this extent.
Therefore, to apply these verses to our lives we need to be born again believers, disciples of Christ who listen to Him daily and pray for His help to love like He does.
Post these verses in a prominent place where you can see them daily as a reminder and then pray that you will love as they say.
Do your best, and if you sometimes fail, remember God will forgive you if you ask Him, so keep trying and ask Him for the strength to do so.
Remember: God loves you just as these verses say. He will be patient and kind with you. He keeps no record of your wrongs. He rejoices in truth,
and He never gives up on you, so be thankful each day for His love for you and keep on trying to love as He does.
