July 12, Day 194 - 1 Corinthians 13

Click here to go to 1 Corinthians 13

It all boils down to love.  We can do all kinds of great things but if we don't have love, it's pretty much worthless.

In high school one of the ministers that visited my church often had this card that she would give out and encourage people to read it each day. She adapted it from 1 Corinthians 13:

I am patient and kind. I am not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. I do not demand my own way. I am not irritable, and keep no record of being wronged.  I do not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. I never give up, never lose faith, am always hopeful, and endure through every circumstance.

Her rational was that God's love abides in us therefore we are those things, or should be.  Thoughts?

Be Blessed! 


  1. Yes, yes, yes! If we all remembered this and lived this chapter every moment of every day, the world would be a much different place. This is one of the best chapters in the Bible.

  2. Wow! Personalizing His Word to us ~*~ our Psalm 139 Personal God!

    1 Corinthians 13:4-6
    I am
    ~ patient
    ~ kind

    I am not
    ~ jealous
    ~ singing my own praises
    ~ arrogant
    ~ rude
    ~ thinking about myself
    ~ irritable
    ~ keeping track of wrongs
    ~ happy when injustice is done

    I am
    ~ happy with the truth

    7 Love never stops being patient, never stops believing, never stops hoping, never gives up.

    I continue to
    ~ be patient
    ~ believe
    ~ hope

    not give up
    because God is Love ~*~

    Thank You, Lord, that You equip us to follow You. Without You, I can do nothing.
