Monday Meditation~LOVE-ly Reminders for a Lovely Day




1 Corinthians 13:1-8,13 (NIV)

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 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....

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

Thank you Kristi,

Kind of reminds me of the fruit of the Spirit. Love must come first b/c we can't exude other qualities that stem from the main one. L.O.V.E. ;)

Godbless you Kristi!
Love, Hester ;)
