On Sunday at CCBC, the passage on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 was shared. I am sure many of you know what this passage is about. Yes, it's about "LOVE".
1Co 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
1Co 13:5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
1Co 13:6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
1Co 13:7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1Co 13:8 Love never fails.
The speaker used some visual images / pictures to help us understand the key words for 1 Cor 13:4-8 to explain what love is:
- never gives up - always there
- cares more for others - not selfish
- is content - doesn't want others' things
- forgives - doesn't keep score (puts up with anything - whatever happens )
- trusts - firm reliance on the integrity, ability, or character of a person
- prays to God - that's the most important thing we can do to those we love
What do you think of these points? And how do you define love personally?
