Scripture Sun...errrr...Monday: 1 Corinthians 13:3-13

So, I am doing Scripture Sunday on a Monday. With the holiday and other things going on in the home, I just didn't have the time to get online yesterday to post. I feel badly, but you know what they say about "better late than never".

This week I want to share a verse that is well known in various forms. 

1 Corinthians 13:3-13

If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, 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. 

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

I hope everyone has a great week.
