~ Love ~

It’s a beautiful word with a wonderful meaning
and yet, we use it so freely today in everyday conversation. We
say things like “I love pizza”, or “I love my job”, “I love football”!
It’s quite apparant that love means many different things to different people and the word is used in a lot of ways.
We have to be careful when using a word like “love” too freely ~ when a word can mean so many different things, it can end up meaning nothing at all !!!!
The most beautiful description of love is found in
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a. It is here that God tells us what “love” is all about:

Love is patient,
love is kind, and is not jealous;
love does not brag and is not arrogant,
does not act unbecomingly;
it does not seek its own,
is not provoked,
does not take into account a wrong suffered,
does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never fails.
