“1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. […] 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
You hear this chapter over and over again, and you think you know every word of it. Do you?
Once, me and my sister were chillin’ on the bed. After a long day we were enjoying listening to music in the room’s silence. The YouTube automatically picked the songs and suddenly chose this Bible chapter, read by a man. 1st Corinthians 13, the hymn of love.We were just listening, focusing on what he said.. And I just realized how deep is love, God’s love, the true, pure love. We think we know a lot about it, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, …” everybody knows that. But on the average days do you live like that? When you tell somebody you love them, do you REALLY mean? These words are so meaningful. God teach me to love more.
