In my morning devotional, the subject was "What is Love?" And of course everyone uses I Corinthians 13 for a definition. It spoke to me this morning, when I read certain key verses of that passage.
4: Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5: does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
7: bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8: LOVE NEVER FAILS.
I wonder how many times I have failed? Or felt the failure of others to show true love? How many times in the past year alone have I moaned about suffering? How many times have I envied someone else? How many times have I been rude or hateful to someone I love? OUCH!Love is the one thing we should be able to depend on in this world.
