Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Oh, how I love, and I mean love this Bible verse! It is one of my favorites and many people’s favorite Bible verse on love. We hear it at weddings, anniversaries, and testimonies on what LOVE really is. This one verse talks about the core of human existence which is LOVE.
LOVE is mentioned in the Bible over 300 times. WOW, do you think GOD is trying to tell us something? He is! He wants us to LOVE, not judge, he wants us to be at peace, not fight, he wants us to hope, not despair, and he wants us to rejoice every day in what we have. For God knows LOVE will help us endure. There is so much uncertainty right now, but the one thing we can always be certain of is LOVE. Love that God has for us and the love we have for God and all his creation! For with LOVE we can endure all things!
Dear Lord, let me always remember I am loved. I will take refuge and solace in your LOVE every day of my life! AMEN!
