"Love never fails." 1 Corinthians 13:8
I have heard many people say, "I am giving up on love." Usually this statement comes from hurt or frustration. The truth is love is readily available to all who want it. It is constant. People fail us, but love is reliable and ever-present. The real issue is people don't know what Godly love is.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 says this, " Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it its 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." Once we get this understanding and then live out these attributes in our relationships, we will experience our best lives. This love is forgiving, merciful, and faithful. Everything around us will begin to change as we embrace and live a love-centered life. But, most of all we will change. But this takes maturity, faith, and a reliance on God. If you want love, give love. How do I do this? you may ask. Live a God-centered life, live in the Now, forgive quickly, show mercy, and extend grace. As you first receive this for yourself and then to others you will notice all the miracles, blessings, and opportunities that are always right there waiting for you to receive them.
