Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
Love 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. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
1st Corinthians chapter 13 verses 1-8. The Holy Bible. NKJV
The words of a famous song says, “All we need is love, love is all we need…”
But what really is love? These words above give a perfect picture of of love and a practical way of showing it. How many people can honestly say that they tick all of these boxes? Always patient? Always kind? Not easily provoked? Thinks no evil? Most of us fail miserably in many of these areas. The truth is, there is only One Who is totally and completely loving. There is only One Who is always patient and is always kind. There is only One Who is not easily provoked and never thinks evil.
There is only One Who will never fail.
The ultimate display of love was shown through the Lord Jesus Christ. He sacrificed His life because of His love for humanity, because of His love for you. He made a way for you to have a real relationship with your Creator, the One Who understands you, Who knows you and loves you. God IS love.
