1 Corinthians 13:4-8
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.
It’s the message of the Bible.
It’s what God is all about.
God is love.
I realize there are times it doesn’t seem like it in the stories of the Old Testament. Of course, there are always those that will disrespect God’s decisions.
It is God that made a way for us to return back to Him.
He did it at the expense of the life of Jesus.
He did it for you.
You do not have to accept His love.
It’s up to you.
It’s freely yours if you want it.
He does not want to punish you for sin.
That is why Jesus gave His life.
But if you do not accept His love through Christ, He will punish you.
It’s your choice.
