Blessings of Love That Lasts Forever

Love is patient and kind.

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,

is always hopeful,

and endures through every circumstance.

Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages

and special knowledge will become useless.

But love will last forever!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Blessings of Loving Others

If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels,

but didn’t love others,

I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

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 didn’t love others,

I would be nothing.

If I gave everything I have to the poor 

and even sacrificed my body,

I could boast about it;

but if I didn’t love others,

I would have gained nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3

Blessings of What We Cannot Even Imagine

No, the wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God—

his plan that was previously hidden,

even though he made it for our ultimate glory

before the world began.

For since the world began,

no ear has heard

and no eye has seen a God like you,

who works for those who wait for him!

….“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,

and no mind has imagined

what God has prepared

for those who love him.”

1 Corinthians 2:7Isaiah 64:41 Corinthians 2:9
