The Story of LOVE

I receive a daily devotion from Internet Cafe Devotions
Parts of today’s devotion struck at my heart.  You can go Devotion to read the whole thing. Tis is written to women, but  I think many parts can be a good lesson for us all. It is based on 1 Corinthians 13: 4-13

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It does not dishonor others, 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 completeness comes, what is in part 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 the ways of childhood behind me.
12 For now we see only a 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.

Sometimes it is hard to love some people, but we need to remember that the Lord loves us and we should show his love to others even if they don’t deserve it.  Thank you, God for that lesson today.
