Love Week

 

In honor of Valentine’s Day, it’s LOVE WEEK here on Get Up With God.

 

When you get right down to it, the Bible is just one gigantic love-fest. But few words in the English language are as misused and misunderstood as “love.” To help remedy that, each day this week we’ll take a look at love from God’s perspective.

 

So, what exactly is love? Here’s what the Bible says:

 

Love is patient,
love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects,
always trusts,
always hopes,
always perseveres.
Love never fails.
(1 Corinthians 13:4-8a)

 

How important is love? The Bible says that even if you can “fathom all mysteries and knowledge” and “have a faith that can move mountains” but don’t have love, here’s what you’ve got: NOTHING.

 

In fact, after defining love, the Bible offers this rather striking conclusion:  “And now these three remain:  faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13)

 

We’ll dig a little deeper tomorrow.  In the meantime:

 

LOVE GOD’S WAY
