I Corinthians 13 is called the "love chapter" of the Bible. It's a beautiful picture of what true, genuine love looks like. After reading it, I questioned, "Since we're not perfect beings, how can we ever accomplish this perfect love?" The answer is simply, "We never will." But does that mean we shouldn't try? If we fail at diets, does that mean we should eat junk food for the rest of our lives? If we fail at budgetting, does that mean we should continue to spend foolishly for the rest of our lives? If we fail in an area of family or marriage, does that mean we should walk out and give up? We can use Christ's example to continually work at this love. I'm so thankful for the love that my heavenly Father has bestowed upon us, and that as many times I have failed Him, He has never left me or forsaken me!
Love is beautiful! I'm thankful for the ones that God has given me to love, and to receive love from.
