1 Corinthians 13

The love chapter! Arguably one of the most familiar passages in all of the Bible, along with Psalm 23 and a couple others. But here’s the deal on the love chapter:

It’s not an isolated chapter. It’s in the context of spiritual gifts and the church being like a body that needs to work together, cooperate, be healthy, etc. The love chapter is in the context of using your gifts to benefit others and working together with other believers. It’s not just a chapter to be quoted at weddings. That said, I don’t want to dilute the beauty of this chapter with my own commentary. So, I’m simply going to type out the poetic part of it and you can read the rest:

Love never gives up

Love cares more for others than for self

Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have

Love doesn’t strut

Doesn’t have a swelled head

Doesn’t force itself on others

Isn’t always “me first”

Doesn’t fly off the handle

Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others

Doesn’t revel when others grovel

Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth

Puts up with anything

Trusts God always

Always looks for the best

Never looks back

But keeps going to the end.

Love never dies.
