If I had the gift of prophecy, and if i understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but did not love others, I would be nothing.
If I gave everything to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it, but if I did not love others, I would have gained nothing.
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.
It is always hopeful, and endures through EVERY circumstance.
Three Things will last forever—faith, hope, and love. The greatest of these is LOVE!
1CR 13 1:13
As I go through a period of my life that I NEVER saw coming, and am in prayer every hour of the day seeking God’s will and direction I ask my readers to not only pray for me, but for all your loved ones. I now understand every word in this passage.
