The Greatest of these is Love..."

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.   And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
 
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;   does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;   does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;  bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
 
Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.   For we know in part and we prophesy in part.  But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.  For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
 I Corinthians 13

There is nothing more to say after reading these scriptures about the true meaning of Love. Nothing to be added or deleted. Thank you Lord for not only giving us the true meaning of Love, but you demonstrated it so beautifully through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

February 14th is a special day, a day to show your love ones how much you love them! It also was my wedding anniversary.  But I rejoice!  I rejoice for the people that are still able to celebrate their love ones on this earth and I rejoice because God allowed me to experience a good marriage with a precious, God fearing man. We were blessed to experience the true love of  I Corinthians 13.

Happy Valentine's Day y'all!  Show your loved ones some love today and always!
