It is not jealous, it is not pompous,
It is not inflated, it is not rude,
it does not seek its own interests,
it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing
but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails. 1 Cor
Paul's description of love is a fitting description of Christ Jesus our Lord, who is all Love and Mercy. In the face of rejection, suffering and contradiction, he is steadfast, compassionate, patient, speaking the truth in love. He is love itself.
