I have read the famous “love” passage in 1 Corinthians hundreds of times in my life. It’s so beautiful, yet so challenging. The expectations put forth in Scripture about loving one another are high. Yet, if we can try to live with this challenge in our hearts, it is so incredibly powerful.
As I read this passage in my daily devotion this morning I was inspired to read it in several translations. I was deeply inspired by the Amplified translation. May it be inspiring to you as well.
Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant. It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured. It does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail]. Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening].1 Cor 13: 4-8a, Amplified
Love never fails [it never fades nor ends].
