Love Never Fails
So recently I found out that someone that was a friend (we had lost touch and just really grew apart) was getting a divorce. Keep in mind here, I am 24 and she is my age. She got married a few years before me, maybe 2ish. Anyway, the point is, it really got me thinking to one of the readings Paul and I had at our wedding, 1 Corinthians 13. Ever since we have been married, you know.. a whole 3 months, the same famous line runs through my head. LOVE NEVER FAILS. Never my friends, love is a choice not a feeling. I know, I have no room to talk I am still in the newlywed stage. But I have been with my man for over 6 years, and we still have mountains to face but we have climbed a few already. And then yesterday
from Seth Adam Smith was posted all over Facebook. Please if you have not read it yet, do! His words are eloquent and so meaningful, I think every couple should read this before getting married! Maybe one of my favorite lines that he writes is this
No, a true marriage (and true love) is never about you. It’s about the person you love—their wants, their needs, their hopes, and their dreams. Selfishness demands, “What’s in it for me?”, while Love asks, “What can I give?”
but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.
And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated,
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.
Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.
So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
