1 Corinthians 13:8-13
8 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. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11 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. 12 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. 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Love never fails. What an amazing concept. What an amazing truth. Where everything else will cease, love continues on and perfects. Love is a much better motivator than fear and that is exactly what God does through Christ. He loves us from our sins to become what we were created to be in his image.
Do you believe that love never fails? Why or why not? Can you give an example?
O Lord, thank you for not failing to love me even in my failures. Amen.
