Love......

Love is patient [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. {1 Corinthians 13:4-8a}

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. {1 Corinthians 13:11, 13}

Love to all my blogger friends this Valentine's day. Love...that is, the unconditional love that this passage refers to...is what it is all about. Without this Love of God, from God, for each other...we've missed it completely.

whenever I'm in the bookstore browsing bible translations that are new to me, I normally read 1 Corith. 13 first to get an idea if the translation is any good or not. Awesome passage.

Happy V-day
