Love Is Patient, Love Is Kind


 Whilst this is extracted from the Bible, I think the message it conveys transcends any religious beliefs.

Love Is Patient, Love Is Kind

1 Corinthians 13

1 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.

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 have not love, I am nothing.

3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not 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 is not rude, 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. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,

10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.

12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

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

  1. I’m so grateful that this Bible can be a supplement to your great wisdom and knowledge. How merciful He is to us. The wisdom of man is foolish with God. Though this very chapter explains why He puts up with the pride of man. Because God is love. And He yearns to help all. Yet so many reject Him not seeing their dire need for His forgiveness and mercy and grace, choosing their own opinions, and thus hell over Him. Hope you are right with God. Love you friend. The end draweth nigh. Romans 10:9
    2 Timothy 3:1-5

    • I am fallible as they come, however I endeavor to do better each and every day. And I don’t see this chapter as he putting up with the pride of man but rather guiding him towards the righteous and fruitful path. Thank you for your contribution and God bless……..this simple prayer holds dear to me….

      A prayer by Saint Francis :
      Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
      Where there is hatred . . . let me sow love
      Where there is injury . . . pardon
      Where there is doubt . . . faith
      Where there is despair . . .hope
      Where there is darkness . . . light
      Where there is sadness . . .joy
      Divine Master,
      grant that i may not so much seek
      To be consoled . . .as to console
      To be understood . . .as to understand,
      To be loved . . . as to love
      For it is in giving . . .that we receive,
      It is in pardoning, that we are pardoned,
      It is in dying . . .that we are born to eternal life
