On My Mind

Everyone knows the Love is Patient, Love is Kind… section of 1 Corinthians 13 but keep reading past verse 7 and you will find another treasure piece of scripture [all scripture is treasure, but you know what I mean].

8Love 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. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When 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 childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor 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.

 13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Can you say you’re this person Paul is describing? I think I’ve got some work to do.
