VerseD: 1 Corinthians 13:4

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant
1 Corinthians 13:4, ESV

It is easier to love this world when our hope and source of love are found in the One who first loved us. Knowing the world mistreated Jesus helps us be patient with those who do not understand what they are doing.

VerseD: 1 Corinthians 13:4-5

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬5, ESV

Love is so much more than a feeling. It is a choice and an action. Our feelings can help us be patient and kind, but it is the power of the Gospel by the Holy Spirit that truly makes it possible.

Through these, we can be like Jesus who endured mocking and beatings to bring us joy.
