1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (MSG)
4 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,
5 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,
6 Doesn’t revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
7 Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.
8 Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit.

Real true love is very powerful. Real true love is unconditional. John wrote, “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” Learning the kind of love that Paul was describing to the Corinthians is the makings of a true disciple. A true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ is when we love one another without conditions. Jesus taught the disciples, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” Jesus was a true example of that kind of love when He knelt down to wash the feet of Judas, knowing that he was going to be betrayed. For all His love he hung on a cross, accepted the punishment for our sins, and died for us. That is real true love. Paul made a statement about adorning ourselves with love because it is the uniting principle or control of perfectness or completeness. Do not be the kind of person that holds grudges or spends their conscious moments finding ways to plot revenge. It is unhealthy for your spiritual soul and it ultimately affects your physical body. Forgiveness is the most used tool when practicing real true love. In fact, Jesus said it is important for the air to be clear between you and others for your prayers to be answered. Do not let anything or anyone stop the flow of blessings into your life. Practice real true love and the blessings will flow freely. Love one another and receive your blessings today.
