Love?

Love.  Love is given so many definitions.  Love is exalted.  Love is polluted.  Love is committed.  Love is defiled.  Love is a choice.  Love is a verb.  Love is lied about for lust.  Love is tried.  Love is vexed.  Love is pressed.  Love is trampled on in the grape press by the smelly feet of those who don’t know what it really is.  Love is bigger.  Love is stronger.  No matter who you know or what you think- Love ALWAYS WINS.

1 Corinthians 13.  Is a chapter.  It’s a chapter about love.  Sounds out-dated, right?  Read it.  It’s small.  It won’t be a waste of time.  Love is so important.  Love must be embraced.  Love must be learned.  Love must be taught.  Love must be embraced.  And this is what it is…

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.  For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 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.”

(1 Corinthians 13:4-11, Known to be a teaching of Paul.)
